Our Corporate Research Database is a unique resource that contains over 25 years of high quality, stress-tested research, compiled by the independent, not-for-profit co-operative Ethical Consumer Research Association.
The database contains information on over 25,000 companies and brands, including data on their environmental reporting, supply chain management, animal testing policies and much more.
We track company practice as well as company policy, through monitoring news and business media as well as campaign group sources from around the world. Read more about how we conduct our research >
The records are regularly updated by our team of highly qualified researchers, who specialise in a range of topics
Unlike most business databases, we rely on the accuracy of our data for regular publication (in Ethical Consumer print magazine and consumer website).
The Corporate Research Database was previously marketed as the Corporate Critic database by Ethical Consumer since 1993, but we changed its name in 2019 to align it more closely with the Ethical Consumer brand.
