The list forms part of the consulting firm’s annual State of CSR report, one of the largest ongoing longitudinal studies on CSR in the world. ACCSR’s Managing Director, Dr Leeora Black, said the results are encouraging because most businesses will address several of the Goals and they see important linkages in their broader societal contributions. “The big focus on Gender Equality shows the effect of recent campaigns within business to address the gender gap,” she said.

The report defines CSR as "organisational practices that address the impacts of an organisation on business, society and the environment or seek to create positive social value through core business".

This year the Annual Review of the State of CSR specifically focused on how companies are aligning their business strategies with the Sustainable Development Goals. It revealed that the most important Goals for Australian and New Zealand businesses are Gender Equality, Good Health and Wellbeing, and Decent Work and Economic Growth.

The 2016 CSR Top Ten includes the organisations that scored greater than 75% for CSR management capabilities, as ranked by their employees. The CSR Top 10 in Australia are Abergeldie, Deloitte, ebm-papst A&NZ, KPMG, NAB, PwC, South32, WaterAid, Westpac and Yarra Valley Water. The CSR Top 3 in New Zealand were Bank of New Zealand, Toyota NZ and Z Energy.

The review includes responses from 1,080 individuals that are employed in Australia and New Zealand. It is the highest number of respondents in the history of the research project, which was first undertaken in 2007, and is repeated annually.

ebm-papst A&NZ have participated in the study for the first time.
