RIR, Responsibility Investment Research is research into the areas of corporate impact on the world, while respecting the Quality Principles and Requirements of ARISTA 3.0®.

  • Incorporating the concepts of corporate sustainability and of corporate social responsibility into its methodologies;
  • Looking for some way to discern and possibly award best practices, hence ‘going beyond legal requirements’;
  • Integrating in an operational way those issues/domains that concern all or most groups of stakeholders related to the researched companies;
  • Actively involving stakeholders in the data collection and/or analysis and/or evaluation/rating of companies on a company or sector level.
