The CSR Online Awards have been conducted by the Milan-based communications consultancy Lundquist for the fourth consecutive year. Lundquist examines how the corporate websites of the 100 biggest companies in Europe (members of the FTSE Eurotop 100 index) are used as a platform for CSR communications and stakeholder engagement. Websites are assessed using a set of 79 criteria in three categories: Contents, User experience and Ongoing engagement. The criteria were drawn up on the basis of a survey of more than 310 CSR professionals, sustainability experts and stakeholder representatives from 37 countries.
