Samsung Electronics Plummets in Global CSR Rankings
Samsung Electronics Co. has fallen 26 notches in this year’s Global CR RepTrak 100, a global survey that rates multinational companies based on their corporate social responsibility (CSR) reputation.
The company placed 90th in this year’s rankings, which were recently published by Boston-based consulting firm Reputation Institute (RI).
It moved down 26 notches from 64th place last year and ranked even lower than the 89th in 2017 when it dropped 69 spots from the previous year due to the arrest of vice chairman Lee Jae-yong and the explosion of the Galaxy Note 7 smartphones. It was the lowest ranking for the company since RI started to release the survey in 2012.
