MERCO is a reputational evaluation instrument that has become a benchmark monitor worldwide. It is carried out in 6 stages in which a global evaluation is generated to measure perception and assessment from 23 sources of information. To achieve this, more than 12,000 surveys were carried out for Company Managers, Financial Analysts, Economics Journalists, Public Officials, NGOs, Trade Unions, Consumers' Associations, Professors, Influencers, Communication Directors and Opinion Leaders.

The exhaustive and rigorous survey includes evaluations on 3 main axes: Reputation, Leadership and Responsibility, and is endorsed by the Analysis and Research Institute, the first independent market research group in Spain and audited by the KPMG consultancy.

In Argentina, the Merco ranking has been carried out annually since 2010, with the same multistakeholder methodology. It is also carried out in 10 other countries, aspires to become the reference Euro-American monitor and is the first reputation monitor verified in the world.
