The Accountability Rating system currently reviews companies in ten different countries, measuring the extent to which their major companies incorporate responsible practices at the heart of their business activities.
Measurements for Greek companies are carried out by the Institute for Social Innovation, which reports for the year 2009: 'Average performance of the 100 largest businesses (in terms of turnover) evaluated this year shows an improvement of 4.8% over the previous year, mainly due to a substantial improvement in the content of the social reports published by these companies, but also to an increase in the number of businesses which issued sustainability or social responsibility reports in 2009'.
