Companies have long been facing expectations to engage with societal stakeholders, act responsibly and transparently, and to make an active contribution to sustainable development. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) standards are important in this regard because they codify societal expectations regarding accountability, transparency, as well as social and environmental sustainability towards companies. In the past decade, the continuous proliferation, diversification and evolution of CSR standards have led to the emergence of standards markets where standard setters compete for adopters but also collaborate at the level of overarching principles. Standard markets are currently opaque and information costs for both business and consumers wishing to compare different standards are very high. Frameworks for the systematic comparison of the merits of CSR standards in a way that allows an informed choice between the many options available are still missing.
