WikiRate is an open source platform that encourages information collaboration regarding environmental, social and governance (ESG) data. It is a platform where reporting standards and stakeholders meet, discuss, and collaborate. It is the metrics marketplace, where the future of ESG reporting is defined. As such, our aim at WikiRate is to provide organisations, academics and concerned individuals with the necessary tools to contribute to, increase and share knowledge and awareness. In doing so WikiRate offers a model of information collaboration that is open, transparent and evolving to help organisations achieve their aspirations for transparency and open-source data.
How to Engage
Organisations can investigate corporate practices and behaviour using established standards and metrics in the areas most pertinent to their overall objectives. They can equally create and populate their own standards and indicators to bring new and pressing issues to the limelight.
Besides setting up an accessible and dynamic reporting infrastructure, organisations can join in an open dialogue with the entire WikiRate community; a diverse network of engaged stakeholders from the reporting industry, as well as academics, students, companies, and concerned citizens. Organisations could for example reach out to get students or interested users to research and populate data, or discuss how metrics may be developed to improve accuracy with other reporting initiatives.
In a nutshell, using the WikiRate.org platform allows organisations to freely generate transparent and high quality data which can be used for advocacy, campaigns, projects, research, and can adapt the platform for new concepts and usage.
Here are some examples of organisations which have used WikiRate for research, and the metrics which they have populated using the platform. Projects using calculated metrics such as formulae, scoring and WikiRating metrics will be coming soon.
Project: UK Modern Slavery Act
Project: Investigating Mineral Sourcing Practices
Project Detox Catwalk
WikiRate is collaborating with top global players who are leading the way in shaping corporate social responsibility reporting.
