Short description: Context’s sixth annual analysis of Corporate Responsibility reporting trends, now expanded globally. Extract: The Context report, based on information from the http://www.CorporateRegister.com/ database, analyses reporting of the world's 300 leading public companies. It shows: - Only 10 of the top 100 in Europe do not report - A majority of the US top 100 now publish a report - Most companies report on a wide range of issues rather than focusing solely on environment or philanthropy - The majority of European reporters use external assurance to validate their reports, but this is less common elsewhere and very rare in the US - A growing number of these companies acknowledge the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines, but very few are formally 'in accordance' with them.
