About

The 2017 Ranking Digital Rights Corporate Accountability Index evaluates 22 of the world’s most powerful telecommunications, internet, and mobile companies on their public commitments and disclosed policies affecting users’ freedom of expression and privacy. As a note: the 2017 ranking is based on a revised methodology made up of 35 indicators, making the scores from 2015 not easily comparable. Additionally, in 2017, this category was renamed “Governance,” whereas in 2015, it was known as, “Commitment.”

The 2015 Ranking Digital Rights Corporate Accountability Index evaluates 16 Internet and telecommunications companies using 31 indicators.

The Governance category of the Index evaluates whether companies demonstrate that they have governance processes in place to ensure that they respect the human rights to freedom of expression and privacy. Both rights are part of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and are enshrined in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. They apply online as well as offline. In order for a company to perform well in this section, the company’s disclosure should at least follow, and ideally surpass, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and other industry-specific human rights standards focused on freedom of expression and privacy such as the Global Network Initiative Principles.
