OpenCorporates is proud to announce our latest feature, global industry codes! While we’ve long collected data for industry codes for a number of jurisdictions (including the UK, France, Norway, even a few US states), we recently finished mapping multiple industry codes to the UN’s international standard for such codes, ISIC (Revision 4).
We live in a corporate world – companies are involved with everything we do, yet the disparity between the availability of personal and company information is striking. We see the timeline of significant (and not so significant) events of our friends in social network feeds every day. Yet it’s extraordinarily difficult to do the same for the companies that we work for, buy from, do business with, help craft our laws via lobbying, and generally influence our lives in multiple ways.
OpenCorporates has always been about providing a better understanding of the corporate world, so it’s essential that we can talk about companies in terms that most people already know.
We're constantly carrying out work that helps improve & enhance our company data. Some of our recent small changes don't warrant a full blog post, so here's a list of some newsworthy updates that we've made recently.
This guide is dedicated to the investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, who was murdered near her home in Malta on the 16th of October 2017, following a series of stories she did around the Panama Papers. Daphne fought tirelessly against corruption, and her contributions will be sorely missed. We’d like to take this as opportunity to send our thoughts to the Caruana Galizia family, and assert our support for investigative journalists around the world.
