We started research on the Sustainability Tree in 2010 but after experiencing the fact that even small reputation helps on & after 28.03.2013, we decided to rename the tree as Sustainability & Reputation tree.

We will start sharing the first draft of the Sustainability & Reputation tree from 5th September 2017 (5th September is observed as a Teachers Day in our sample country India).

We know every tree is different and so the branches & leaves of the tree are different from corporates, governments, corporates, NGOs, funding agencies ..
Of course we know that the top of the tree covers Vision, Mission, Purpose and it has to be the top of all stakeholder trees, so are the roots of the tree like Governance, Transparency, Accountability, Privacy, Ethics, Values, Trust, investing in future.

We have started sharing the top, roots, branches & leaves of sustainability & reputation tree and we know they represent the criteria to measure CSR (Conscience, Sustainability & Reputation).
While the top & roots are common for all stakeholders, let us be clear that we will start sharing branches, leaves of Sustainability & Reputation Tree for corporates first and then start sharing branches & leaves of various stakeholders in due time because there are many indices, principles for corporates across the world but very few NGOs are large and therefore millions of small & mid sized NGOs do not have People & planet policies. The country governments have really large responsibility of citizens of their country and they will have lot of privacy issues (life safety) and transparency for government may not be same as that of corporates but we believe that every stakeholder must be transparent to its audience (the level will surely be different for each stakeholder)
