Professor Sethi Leads Creation of CSR-Sustainability MonitorTM

PSBaruch College’s Weissman Center for International Business has created the CSR-Sustainability MonitorTM that examines 560 CSR reports from national and international corporations.

Researchers at the Weissman Center for International Business, under the direction of University Distinguished Professor S. Prakash Sethi, have developed the CSR-Sustainability MonitorTM which is an analytic framework for the systematic and objective evaluation of CSR reports. Reports were collected in 2011 and were reviewed in 2012. The scores were applied to 11 individual sections and weighted to provide a total score of 100. Scores for the Top CSR reports will be released during a launch event in January 2013. Read more.
