Index of Corporate Political Spending Updated
by Robert Kropp
The Center for Political Accountability and the Zicklin Center update their Index of Corporate
Political Accountability and Disclosure, finding that voluntary disclosure of corporate political
spending is becoming a mainstream practice.
By ranking companies in the S&P 100
according to their disclosure and board oversight of political spending activities, the CPA-Zicklin
Index of Corporate Political Disclosure and Accountability provided shareowners and other
stakeholders with insight into how the nation's largest companies are addressing the risks
associated with political spending.
