Estelle Clark, Director of Policy at the CQI, comments: “For the first time, the failings of the tech sector is laid bare. We have found a sector mired in governance violations, more akin to the first industrial revolution, than companies at the vanguard of technological advancement in the 21 st century.”

“We should be expecting the tech sector to set new, higher, standards for governance rather than lagging way behind,” Estelle concludes.

“We are pleased to provide data for CQI’s efforts in digging deeper into companies’ business conduct,” says Alexandra Mihailescu Cichon, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing at RepRisk. “ESG and business conduct risks related to human rights, labor, and corruption can translate into reputational, compliance, and financial risks for a company and we encourage increased transparency.”

The report covers the last eighteen months and was compiled by CQI using RepRisk’s data that analyzes sources worldwide and in 20 languages ranging from media, stakeholders, and other public sources external to a company. RepRisk is specialized in systematically identifying, analyzing and quantifying business conduct risks such as human rights violations, breaches of labor standards, environmental damage, corruption, and violations of international standards.
