Benchmarking performance on a wide range of responsibility and sustainability issues, and using the results to inform and empower businesses, is at the heart of what Responsible 100 does.
We support all kinds of organisations in describing how they respond to the various responsibility challenges they face.
Issue by issue, we explain the basics. The illustrations on this page use Living Wage as an example. We explain the basics, i.e. evidence shows very low or ‘poverty wages’ cause incredible harm and hardship, for families and society generally, and how the Real Living Wage has been designed to ensure the lowest paid earn enough to live on.
We provide prompts to help businesses make relevant, basic disclosures. These are the earliest steps in our process where nothing is shared nor published.
We've explored thousands of different real-life policy and practice examples. And we’ve sought to understand and describe different standards of business response as either POOR, OKAY, GOOD or EXCELLENT.
In so doing, we've built up an incredibly valuable, constantly evolving, open-sourced set of performance benchmarks.
By benchmarking in this way, across their selected priority responsibility issues, we help businesses to discover the pathways open to them to achieve better social and environmental practices and outcomes.
