Most of Marquard and Bahls' CSR information is vague or inexistent. Some irrelevant information is given, such as the fact that Marquard and Bahls is a shareholder of Oil Spill Response, which says nothing of the company's actual spill response practices. The human rights reporting/UN Global Compact standards are in a secured report, which hindered scoring. Including environmental and ethical practices in a coherent report would greatly improve the company's transparency score. However, the company reports some progressive initiatives, such as voluntary perfomance of environmental assessments. Analyzed by Michael Handler Shoemaker, and posted to the web on 3/4/2010.
The letter grades reported below are based on all reports irrespective of year of the same sector in the database and may be slightly different from the grades in the individual sector reports, which are based on scores of companies in just that report.
