Results of the preliminary assessment

Letters and emails have been sent to the companies (where we have contact details) to provide them with their draft scores and invited them to disclose more information to increase their final score – which will be based on websites at 31 August 2020.

In the preliminary scoring process, it was found that 161 out of 277 companies (58%) have functioning websites (up from 56% in 2019). For the first round of assessment, the overall average score was 5%, as it was in the 2019 report. However, only 30 companies have updated their websites in the last year. Average draft scores for companies in different categories are:
