For the third year in a row, Ethos ESG has released itsTop Corporate Watchdogslist, highlighting organizations we see as the best sources of information on corporate impact, many of which are used in our ratings of companies and funds. We evaluate these organizations based on several criteria: relevance to UN Sustainable Development Goals, independence, rigor of analysis, breadth of coverage, and more.

Some highlights from this years list:

  • 14 new organizations
  • Top 50 now included in the list
  • New organizations in the top 10: B Lab (B Corporation), Public Interest Research Group, and Global Witness
  • As You Sow remains #1
  • Companies with a primary emphasis on offering investment products are no longer eligible; only organizations focused on corporate accountability are included.

We look forward to increasing our impact in 2023 by working with many of these organizations in order to provide our customers with robust and relevant ESG data . If you have any questions, please reach out to us at
