Published on

This presentation displays an overview of Lundquist's CSR Online Awards 2009 and preliminary results of the CSR communications survey.

The survey of almost 200 CSR professionals sought to monitor their needs in terms of online CSR communications.

The results of this survey form the basis of a ranking of the websites of 91 members of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.

This presentation was originally given by James Osborne, head of CSR at Lundquist, at the H&H Swiss Webranking awards in Zurich on 23 February 2009.
