Comments from Accountability-Central's Users
"As a socially responsible investment adviser and writer for my local daily newspaper for twenty years, I had to be up to date on all pertinent issues in my specialized profession and the global financial industry in general. Of course, I read The Wall Street Journal every day but how much are you going to find out about corporate environmental, social, and governance issues (ESG)? Before the arrival of Accountability-Central.com I had to gather my own news through numerous sources and yes, Google's news feeds did help once they were established, but now I let Accountability-Central do the work for me. The web site is organized for quick retrieval of news on ESG issues and you can get daily RSS feeds on over a dozen topics. Of course I rely on their weekly AC News Alert to pick out the top stories but when I need to do research I start with Accountability-Central.com."
