The AICSRR opens up its borders with the inclusion of KOCSR from Korea and Greeneye from Israel.  Both independent CSR research groups committed to the 11 Commitments, the Integrity Principles and Ethical Commitments of the Voluntary Quality Standard. In the upcoming months the groups will undergo the certification process. 

KOCSR was launched as an affiliated research centre with CCSR (The Center for Corporate Social Responsibility) in June 2007. It became an independent ESG research company in July 2008 with four shareholders, which are independent stakeholders from the SRI Market such as NGOs, CSR Institutes and religious Organizations. KOCSR conducts comprehensive research on social, environmental and ethical performance of over 100 Korean companies. KOCSR provides Korean companies’ ESG data to global and Korean investors. http://www.ko-csr.com

Greeneye is the primary provider of independent research into the social, environmental and ethical performance of companies in Israel. Greeneye advises the financial sector on assimilating environmentally considerate thinking and incorporating environmental criteria into decision making on investment, finance and insurance issues. Greeneye specializes in the development of environmental strategy and environmental policy for the financial and business sector, for the public sector and for the non-profit sector in Israel. http://www.greeneye.co.il

The AICSRR is open to independent CSR research groups from over the whole world. Starting from Europe, it is widening up to other regions. CSR data providers joined from Australia, Asia and the middle-East. The latest applicant going through the application process right now is Ecovalores in Mexico, which will be the first American country becoming a member and getting certified.
