    * The Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy commissions this study into the transparency of CSR reporting among the 500 largest companies every two years. Additionally,  2023 has been the last reporting year for due to increased report requirements of EU regulation.

    *** QualityScore uses a numeric, decile-based score that indicates a company’s governance risk relative to their index or region. A score in the 1st decile (QS:1) indicates relatively higher quality governance practices and relatively lower governance risk. Conversely, a score in the 10th decile (QS:10) indicates relatively higher governance risk. Companies receive an overall QualityScore and a score for each of four pillars: Board Structure, Compensation/Remuneration, Shareholder Rights and Audit & Risk Oversight.​​
