Ranking of sustainability reports by IÖW and future
The ranking of sustainability reports is a joint project of the Institute for Ecological Economy Research (IÖW) and the business initiative future e.V. – verantwortung unternehmen. Since 1994 the biannual IÖW/future-ranking has been evaluating the societal reporting of major German companies. Based on a comprehensive set of social, environmental, managementand communication-related criteria it compiles a ranking of the best reporters. Since 2009 the IÖW/future ranking is accompanied by an independent evaluation of the reports of German small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
