The Corporate Art Rating (CAR) is the only sustainability rating in the world focusing on Art.

It is based on the assumption that Art is the ultimate expression of Corporate Social Responsibility.

Companies that are actively involved in the Art world tend to be successful in terms of profitability

and have overcome most ethical, environmental and social challenges.

  • Other Art projects



pptArt’s final evaluations are expressed with nine different Standard Corporate Art Rating classes: A+; A; A-; B+; B; B-; C+; C; C-


  • “A” level or above, indicates an active involvement with the art world with several good-quality projects at international level.

  • B” level indicates several good quality projects at national or local level.


  • “C” level indicates sporadic art projects in the past years with limited plans in the near future



pptArt’s certification process ranks the Corporate Art projects according to the

CPQR criteria:



Permanent and regular initiatives (e.g.: museums, art collections) are ranked higher than one-off projects.



Passion of the managers and openness of the initiatives to the public are key criteria.



Not all art initiatives are the same…



International projects are ranked higher than national or local initiatives as they show the full power of art as a global language.
