The WikiRate project
At WikiRate, we have developed an open data platform that allows anyone to systematically gather, analyze and report publicly available information on corporate ESG practices. By bringing this information together in one place making it accessible, comparable, and free for all, we aim to provide society with the tools and evidence it needs to help and encourage companies to respond to the world's social and environmental challenges. To date, WikiRate.org is the largest open-source registry of ESG data, with more than 2.5 million data points for over 100,000 companies. During the session, we will highlight how WikiRate is used as a tool to assess companies' disclosed policies and practices, including those related to digital rights.
