Since 1994, this is the fourth time which ranking of environmental reports has been carried out. Ranking is based on criteria which have been developed within a 1994 research project. The criteria have been slightly updated to include the dialogue with companies and their Stakeholders, within each ranking process. The main criteria used are listed below.
Each of these main criteria is described and evaluated by the use of 3-5 sub-criteria. Each sub-criteria is checked within the evaluation process, and is scored as follows:
The following example shows the calculation for the criteria A.4. "Site-specific information on material and energy flows"
The full list of criteria and sub-criteria are available as a pdf-file taken out of our publication:
