Why Use Big Data to Measure CSR?

Blog

The following is part 3 of a 3-part series on “Big Data."

In the past several posts, we have defined Big Data, shown the problems we hope it will address, and described how CSRHub has implemented a Big Data approach to creating corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability ratings.  It is time now to discuss the benefits and drawbacks of the “Big Data” approach.

In the previous posts in this series, we showed that there is a strong correlation between brand strength as measured by the Brand Finance Brand Strength Index and sustainability as measured by CSRHub’s metrics engine.  We promised to examine more closely whether or not the correlation we discovered is meaningful.
