Socrates: The Corporate Social Ratings Monitor

Posted Fri, 10/17/2008 - 11:42am by Stanley Lyle

Rod Library recently subscribed to Socrates, produced by KLD Research & Analytics. It can be accessed from the library catalog (UNISTAR) or from Databases A-Z in the middle of the Rod Library home page. Socrates can be used to study the performance of specific companies in various environmental, social, and governmental areas such as climate change, diversity, and transparency. It also reports company activities regarding controversial business issues such as alcohol, contraceptives, firearms, gambling, and so on. Socrates also can be used to identify groups of companies that are involved in specified issues.
