Watchdog and Wharton center release their latest study that tracks companies’ disclosures of political spending.
As the U.S. continues to look polarized politically, a growing number of S&P 500 companies have made the effort to earn the highest scores from a watchdog organization that’s focused on transparency in corporate political spending.
That’s according to the latest study co-authored by that organization, the Center for Political Accountability in Washington, D.C., and the Zicklin Center for Business Ethics Research at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.
The study found a record number of S&P 500 components achieved scores of 90% in the CPA-Zicklin Index of Corporate Political Disclosure and Accountability. There were 100 such companies, dubbed “Trendsetters,” up from 89 last year.
