Investis Digital, a leading global digital communications company, announced the publication of a new ranking of the top ten global leaders that use digital most effectively to build their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) reputations. The first-of-its-kind rankings were published in a report, The New ESG Agenda, which offers insight into how businesses can build trust through their commitment to ESG.

The rankings, which represent a cross-section of global firms, are as follows:

To rank these leaders, Investis Digital applied its Connect.IQ proprietary tool and methodology to evaluate 1,000 websites of the leading publicly traded companies around the world. The company scored the companies along 50 ESG criteria, such as:

  3. Gender pay reporting

  4. Inclusivity reporting

  5. United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) quantified

  6. Case studies demonstrating the enterprise’s commitment to ESG


The New ESG Agenda also offers insights into how businesses can more effectively share their ESG story based on Investis Digital’s own client work. For example, the report offers tips for how businesses can share their diversity/inclusion strategies on their websites.

"Everyone is trying to understand how to incorporate ESG principles into their digital presence,” said Luke Bishop, VP of Strategic Growth, Investis Digital. “How well you tell your story online is critical to building trust with your audiences and drive your long-term growth strategy. This report highlights how you can build a foundation by telling a credible story on your own website and key steps on how you can enhance your own ESG practices."

Grounded in its mission to create meaningful connections through digital to drive business performance, Investis Digital is committed to creating long-term value for its stakeholders through its proprietary approach called Connected Content™. As businesses update their ESG strategies, they’re also taking a closer look at how well they communicate those strategies to investors, customers, job seekers, and employees who look toward corporations to play a more meaningful role in society.
