Maybe we could combine some already existing criteria like the net asset value (NAV), German income approach, Cash-Flow and so on and multiplying it with a scaling factor (emission compared to other companies?) If someone is interesting, I would like to form a working group. :)

Hi Yoshi,

Great, if you can take over the beginning of the CWI rating method! This could also be an interesting "Diplomarbeit" or end of year work at the university. Please remember by defining CWI: as for the SWI, the key concepts is:

  • the CWI should be simple and understandable
  • the CWI should be transparent (data and data sources are easy to find)
  • the CWI should be traceable (anyone can re-apply the rating by using the formula and data sets used)

Also Yoshi, I have read many comments on internet and many people would like the method to take the following points into account:

  • Social environment of the company. Maybe you can have a look at the site, this project is dedicated to rate the corporate social environment
  • Environmental behavior (for instance Co2 emission)

I wish you much success with the CWI, and, again, many thanks for your contribution so far!

I agree that there has to be elements of the environmental record as well as any risks of exposure to lawsuits. Not only are these risky behaviors by companies exposing them to losses and fines, They tend to act as a proxy for determining the overall efficiencies (or lack thereof) for the rest of the metrics.

Hey! We are a group of students from India doing a project on Credit Rating.We were really amazed by the existence of an open source transparent community based rating system. Has there been any progress with the CWI rating method?
