Introduction Following the success of the inaugural edition of the Global CSR Risk and Performance Index published last year, this year's edition provides an updated analysis of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) performance of businesses around the world, now covering the 2015-2017 timeframe. Data drawn from more than 42,000 EcoVadis assessments of over 33,000 companies allowed us to provide comprehensive snapshots of nine industry divisions along with observations on regional contrasts and similarities as well as performance analysis of large vs. small and medium-sized companies. An analysis of the four underlying theme scores, Labor & Human Rights Practices, Business Ethics (formerly Fair Business Practices), Environment and Sustainable Procurement, also provides valuable insights into how successfully businesses are addressing particular areas of CSR. This year, we also introduce Index Online, an interactive tool, which makes it possible to drill down to view some of these cross-comparisons of sustainability scores of industry divisions and geographic areas. The tool, which you can access at index.Ecovadis.com will allow you to save or share the data views and graphs you create. The U.K. sample covers more than 1195 companies, including over 229 large enterprises from nine industries. It provides a meaningful overview of the country's performance and a testimony to its advanced sustainability policies and practices over the years: The U.K. outperforms all regions including Europe, receiving high scores in nearly all themes. This U.K. data and analyses are available in both this Spotlight Report as well as the above-mentioned Index Online. We welcome feedback on these two approaches and will strive to ensure future editions are even more practical and informative. Sylvain Guyoton Senior Vice President of Research
