Companies’ policies, practices and disclosure related to promoting good nutrition for all, i.e. preventing and tackling obesity and diet-related chronic diseases, are assessed using the U.S. Index Corporate Profile methodology. The Corporate Profile scores and ranking provide one of two the main outcomes of the U.S. Index 2018.
The methodology of the U.S. Index 2018 Corporate Profile is organized into sections, categories, criteria and indicators. There are 19 criteria in all, grouped into seven categories (A-G) across the following three sections: 1) Governance, 2) Delivering products, and 3) Influencing consumer choice and behaviors. Each criterion comprises multiple specific Indicators. Companies are assessed on these indicators, using predefined answer options.
The Access to Nutrition Index rates food and beverage manufacturers´ nutrition-related policies, practices and disclosures worldwide on a recurring basis.
