Though businesses can gain understanding and insight of their own practices simply through the question answering process, they can also further benefit from sharing selected answers with invited stakeholders or with the public at large.
A business can share its answers within a limited group, such as employees, specific investors or certain NGOs. Bespoke versions of the Responsible 100 platform are configured to enable this dialogue and interaction away from the public gaze.
Alternatively or subsequently to selective disclosure, businesses can choose to publish answers on the Responsible 100 website so the general public can view them. This enables the public to scrutinise, comment and rate the answers.
The public can assess businesses against one another and compare their practices and policies. This opportunity helps individuals better understand the challenges businesses face and the decisions they are making.
