CSRHub is the first to aggregate environmental, employee, community and governance data -- 20 million elements from 200 sources covering 7,000 companies across 135 industries and 82 countries -- into an open, integrated, accessible database platform.
Through subscriptions at multiple price points, we serve corporations, consultants, academics and NGOs with sustainability metrics and tools. We resell reports, training and consulting. Our sustainability widget feeds data to news sites, blogs, and corporate intranets. We sell data to our partners for integration into their products, using our API platform.
CSRHub rates 12 indicators of employee, environment, community and governance performance and flags many special issues. We offer subscribers immediate access to millions of detailed data points from our 200 data sources. Our data comes from eight socially responsible investing firms, well-known indexes, publications, best of or worst of lists, NGOs, crowd sources and government agencies. By aggregating and normalizing the information from these sources, CSRHub has created a broad, consistent rating system and a searchable database that links each rating point back to its source.
McKibben’s Extreme Energy: “Why Not Frack?”
By Carol Pierson Holding
Bill McKibben, the environmentalist, prolific author, former New Yorker writer and founder of grassroots green organization 350.org, wrote a review of two books and a film on hydraulic fracturing for last week’s New York Review of Books. Until I read this piece, titled “Why Not Frack?,” I shared the opinions of Robert Kennedy, Jr., the Sierra Club and President Obama that the fracking process for removing gas from underground shale is the least of energy’s environmental evils. Infinitely cleaner than coal. Safer than nuclear. Less risky than oil.
Even the term “fracking” brings a host of reassuring associations. Frick and Frack comes from a pair of skating comedians who later conceptualized the Ice Follies. The moniker continued to be a favorite, from the pair of Chihuahuas on Dudley Do-right to the stars of NPR program Car Talk. Frack is the second half of a funny, loyal, hard-working partnership. Most of all, it is harmless.
