CRO (Corporate Responsibility Officer), a unit of business media publisher Crossing Media, has begun providing enhanced access to CRO member companies' corporate responsibility and sustainability reports through a content partnership with the U.K.'s CorporateRegister.com, which offers the globe's largest, online database of corporate responsibility and sustainability reports.
The new partnership highlights the corporate responsibility and sustainability reports of The CRO's corporate member, while streamlining the timeliness of CorporateRegister.com companies' updates.
To access the Corporate Responsibility Reports feature on www.thecro.com, users click on the 'Corporate Responsibility Reports' tab on the left side of TheCRO.com homepage. They then navigate to a page that features reports from The CRO's corporate members. Companies do not need to contact TheCRO.com to display their newly issued reports since CorporateRegister.com has automated the updating process.
"This partnership becomes another value-added benefit for The CRO's roughly 140 corporate members, who already get privileged access to research and other content through the Members Lounge on TheCRO.com," said Jonathan Campbell, the CRO's Vice President of Membership Development. "We believe that access to premium content, such as that offered through Corporate Register and through CRO-generated events and publications, will be an ongoing process and a signature of our corporate responsibility mission."
Visitors to www.theCRO.com can also get further updates and access reports from thousands of non-CRO member companies free-of-charge through CorporateRegister.com.
CorporateRegister.com, too, benefits through the content partnership with TheCRO by gaining a new platform to reach a predominantly U.S. audience on TheCRO.com. Since the release of CRO's '100 Best Corporate Citizens' list last month, traffic to www.theCRO.com has spiked to exceed 100,000 unique visitors monthly.
"We are proud to partner with The CRO to provide this value-added resource for The CRO's member companies and website visitors, and hope this serves as an incentive for all CRO members to publish such a report," said Paul Scott, Managing Director, CorporateRegister.com Ltd.
The partnership between CRO magazine, a unit of Crossing Media, based in Edison, N.J., and the U.K.'s CorporateRegister.com, was announced several months ago and implemented March 27.
