The rating of companies’ ethical, social and environmental performance is an increasingly common practice. This paper describes a research project designed to explore empirically this phenomenon of growing importance. It outlines a framework that positions rating agencies as information intermediaries and from this derives an initial list of research questions relating to the three major categories of players involved – companies, rating agencies and users of the ratings generated.
