KLD Global Socrates: a new database on corporate social responsibility

The KLD Global Socrates database provides researchers with data on company performance and major initiatives in the areas of human rights, anti-competitive practices, business ethics, employee safety, climate change and non-carbon emissions, effluents and waste. It also covers major controversies and corporate policies. You can find what businesses a company is involved with and how it compares with peers in that sector.
