The first CQI Insight Report finds sector wide governance failures
after assessing the world's leading technology companies

RepRisk, a leading research and business intelligence provider,
specializing in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) and business
conduct risks, and the Chartered Quality Institute (CQI), a global
professional body advancing the practice of quality management, are
delighted to announce the release of the first CQI Insight Report Technology
on Trial,
focusing on the world's largest 14 tech companies and
their corporate governance performance.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here:

Estelle Clark, Director of Policy at the CQI, comments: "For the first
time, the failings of the tech sector is laid bare. We have found a
sector mired in governance violations, more akin to the first industrial
revolution, than companies at the vanguard of technological advancement
in the 21st century."

"We should be expecting the tech sector to set new, higher, standards
for governance rather than lagging way behind," Estelle concludes.

"We are pleased to provide data for CQI's efforts in digging deeper into
companies' business conduct," says Alexandra Mihailescu Cichon,
Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing at RepRisk. "ESG and
business conduct risks related to human rights, labor, and corruption
can translate into reputational, compliance, and financial risks for a
company and we encourage increased transparency."

The report covers the last eighteen months and was compiled by CQI using
RepRisk's data that analyzes sources worldwide and in 20 languages
ranging from media, stakeholders, and other public sources external to a
company. RepRisk is specialized in systematically identifying, analyzing
and quantifying business conduct risks such as human rights violations,
breaches of labor standards, environmental damage, corruption, and
violations of international standards.
