    Hi I am doing a dissertation on how ethical companies are in food retail and banks and looking at what factors influence if a company is ethical. ie a key theme is who owns the company, what market type they are aimed at and the individuals and history behind the company.

    Obviously being a member of this website has provided me with a wealth of material in writing this piece. However to be able to use the ratings you do on companies and also for my own interest I would appreciate more information on your methodology.
    I understand each positive and negative story on each factor affects the company but how do you determine by how much? Is it a simple addition system or more of a subjective model in terms of you rate how bad or good the story is.

    Thanks any help on this would be greatly appreciated!

    Nick

    ps if any of that didnt make sense please let me know, or if you have any bright ideas then I would be keen to hear that to

    Also within each category it would be interesting how you clearly define each factor like supply chain management as that could encompass a vast ammount of information or could be narrowed down, depending if its on policy or examples of treatment of the supply chain.
