The Partnership Will Use CSRHub’s Data To Integrate ESG Into Supply Chain Analysis

New York - August 25, 2020 – CSRHub, a leader in consensus ESG (Environment, Social, and Governance) ratings and information, announced today a partnership with Craft, the enterprise intelligence provider, to integrate data from CSRHub into Craft’s offerings. This integration will help supply chain managers build a 360-degree view of supplier ESG risk.

“The case for using corporate social responsibility measures as a leading indicator of company performance, and social and environmental impact has never been stronger. It is quickly becoming a key consideration in managing risk, driving customer satisfaction, and building ethical and resilient supply chains among our customers, said Ilya Levtov, founder and CEO of Craft. “We’re delighted to be working with CSRHub to incorporate its ESG ratings into Craft’s 360 degree view of every supplier that can be monitored on our platform.”

Recent climate, health, and social challenges have disrupted Craft_CSRHubsupply chains. Both companies see this partnership as a timely response to these challenges that could decrease supply chain risk and increase supply chain resilience.  

With ratings on 20,000 companies, CSRHub is a leader in consensus ESG ratings. “We expect to benefit from Craft’s strong customer relationships and its experience in supply chain management” said Cynthia Figge, CEO and Co-founder of CSRHub. “We are excited to bring high-value ESG data to Craft’s customers and enjoy being aligned with a company that shares our values.”

Do Political Donations Really Predict Corporate Behavior?

[fa icon="calendar'] Aug 21, 2020 10:00:52 AM / by CSRHub Blogging

Goods Unite Us has spent thousands of hours vetting companies' political expenditures in federal elections. They will tell you about the donations made by the organization and its senior employees along with each company's exclusive Campaign Finance Reform Score. CSRHub measures the environmental, social and governance performance of thousands of companies by aggregating 700 sources to derive consensus ESG ratings.

Goods Unite Us and CSRHub have combined datasets to see if any correlations showed up in terms of political affiliation and ESG scores. And some did. 

Our new joint report, which to our knowledge is the first of its kind, is available here. In short: 

goods unite us_CSRHub2

Blue companies outperform red companies overall and in three of four ESG categories.

CSRHub’s ratings measure four main categories: a company’s relationship with its community, its employees, the environment, and the boardroom governance that guides all of it. We found that the political leanings, right or left, of a company’s leadership could predict it’s scores overall and in three of the four ESG categories.

The findings of our joint report paint an amazingly clear picture of how the political leanings of a firm’s leadership affect its relationships with the environment, its supply chain, and its own workers. If a company is blue, it is statistically more likely to have better scores in all of these areas.

CSRHub’s Chief Technology Officer and cofounder Bahar Gidwani notes: “Both corporate managers and investors are interested in understanding the relationship between a company’s political activity and its social impact. This study demonstrates that there is a connection and suggests that political contributions should be seen as part of a company’s sustainability profile.”

The findings were statistically significant in all categories except for governance, where Democrat-leaning companies did score higher, but not in a way significant enough to show a generalizable pattern. 

In a nutshell, political donations are an exceptionally good predictor of not only a company’s political views, but also of its actual behavior. As Abigail Wuest, our CEO and cofounder, puts it, “These donations can tell you a lot about a company’s day-to-day behavior. And that’s priceless information to have when you’re deciding who to buy from or invest in.”

Our final report is available here.
