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).
