Description Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has been discussed over the last four decades. Global social demands require organizations to report their environmental and social impact, which can be done based on the standards of Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). These establish that economic value can be distributed in at least 5 aspects: Operational Costs, Salary and Employee Benefits, Payments to Suppliers, Payments to Government, and Investments in the Community. Given this, from a stakeholder’s perspective, inquiries arise about concentration in the distributed value. After an exploratory qualitative analysis followed by an Ensembled Clustering algorithm implementation, 3 and 5 groups were identified in 2018 and 2019 respectively from the companies with greater presences in the stock market. Each group has concentrations in 4 of the 5 aspects previously listed by the GRI. According to the results, the identification of these groups would allow investors to know the spotlights on the distributed value generation so using this as inputs when investments are made. Additionally, according to the results, the characteristics related to the Investments in the Community was identified as not considered by any groups, opening a gap of differentiating aspect and improvement by companies.
La Responsabilidad Social Corporativa (RSE) ha sido discutida durante las últimas cuatro décadas. Las demandas sociales mundiales exigen que las organizaciones reporten su impacto ambiental y social, los cuales pueden ser realizados en base a los estándares del Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). Estos guían a las empresas para mostrar el valor económico distribuido en al menos 5 aspectos, los cuales son Costos Operacionales, Salarios y Beneficios a empleados, Pago a Proveedores, Pagos al Gobierno, e Inversiones en la Comunidad. Dada esta facilidad, desde una perspectiva de parte interesada, surge la pregunta de la posible existencia en distintos focos de este valor distribuido. Luego de un análisis cualitativo exploratorio y la posterior aplicación de algoritmos de clustering ensamblados, se identificaron tres grupos en el año 2018  derivados de las empresas bajo estudio, que corresponden a las que tienen una mayor presencia en el mercado a través de sus cotizaciones bursátiles, y cinco grupos en el año 2019. Cada grupo tiene un enfoque en 4 de los 5 aspectos enlistados previamente por el GRI. De acuerdo a los  resultados obtenidos, la generación de grupos permite al inversionista conocer el foco de la distribución de la generación de valor en la empresa en la cuál realizará la inversión. Adicionalmente, el concepto Inversiones en la Comunidad no fue identificado como característico en los grupos identificados, pudiendo existir oportunidades de mejora por parte de las empresas.
