Sammanfattning

We investigate the degree of consistency among major SRI analyst agencies in Europe and North America with regards to what criteria they take into account when rating companies. Lists of criteria, as well as actual company ratings, are obtained by contacting the SRI analyst agencies. We focus on environmental criteria, and limit the investigation to two specific industries: car manufacturing and forestry/paper. The reliability and validity of SRI ratings is frequently questioned. One objection relates to the apparent lack of theory behind the selection of criteria on which the ratings are based. However, empirical evidence for these claims is notably lacking in the literature. In order to assess the validity of the environmental assessment instruments, we aim to scrutinise how the lists of environmental criteria hold up against various theoretical frameworks. In order to assess the reliability of the instruments, we also aim to test to what degree the various SRI analyst organisations differ as to how they rank-order companies within the two industries.
