The CSR Online Awards is a series of rankings that examine how the internet is used to communicate CSR, covering more than 220 companies in its 2011 edition. New last year was a study of Europe’s 100 biggest companies.
This executive summary reveals how Austria’s largest companies fall behind their European peers in online CSR communications: about half of companies don’t offer a formal account of their social and environmental impacts.
OMV emerged as the top-ranked company with a total of 59 points out of 100. EVN came second with 53.5 with VERBUND in third (47 points).

Top-ranking companieswere evaluated a third time.The assessment was restricted to the CSR (orequivalent) section of the website to reflect the factthat this is a point of reference for users interested inthese issues. Content outside of this area (for example,in corporate governance, investor relations or careersections) was evaluated only if there was a directlink from the CSR section to the relevant page ordocument.Although this rule may seem restrictive, it aims toreward those websites that fully integrate CSR-relatedinformation, for example with cross-links. Given thesize of many corporate websites, users should findthe necessary “signposts” to find the information theyare looking for. In the same way, the content of mini-sites was evaluated only in cases where users wereclearly directed there in association with CSR-relatedinformation.Where companies had more than one section of thewebsite (at the same menu level) dealing with CSR-related issues, all of these sections were evaluated.For example, some companies split their informationbetween Citizenship and Environment sections.The contents of CSR reports (interactive or in PDF) wereexcluded from the assessments because the researchaims to understand how corporate websites are usedto communicate CSR to a broad audience and not toassess reporting per se.As above, content was evaluated whenever a direct,specific link was provided to the relevant page orpages in the report as a way to guide users to furtherinformation (generic links to the report homepage or toentire sections were not considered). PDF documentsnow allow links to specific pages.Report contents were evaluated directly only in the caseof web-based reporting, when the report was fullyintegrated within the CSR section of the corporatewebsite: this reporting format involves offering only oneonline source of non-financial information (hence noconflict between report content and website content andgenerally no change in the menu structure and pagelayout, no change in the basic URL of the corporate site,no need to open another window or tab in the browser).
