CSRHub Launches Unique Directory of Corporate CSR Websites
This blog was originally posted on the CSRHub blog.

About two months ago, CSRHub quietly added links to the CSR websites for a large minority of the companies we track. In a forthcoming update, we’ll be adding more of these links and we will soon have them available for almost half of the around 5,000 companies we track.
You can see these links (when we have them) at the top of our company page—right underneath the main website for each company. (We have corporate websites for almost every company in our database.) We also provide a company description, address information, and in many cases, a contact phone number. (This link will show you the page for Volkswagen AG.)
At present, all of this information is available free—although it is so valuable that we are considering only sharing it with our subscribers. The data can be exported (into an XML sheet) by those who have our “professional subscription”—which costs $89 per month or $799 per year. The data can also be accessed using our RESTful API.
