Spanish term or phrase: clave de lectura transversal
Interesante remarcar como, desde el punto de vista de las empresas seleccionadas, sus prácticas sociales y medioambientales se traducen en resultados económicos. Percepción realizada a pesar de que las mismas empresas no pueden ir más allá de la atribución de parte de su éxito profesional a sus actuaciones sociales o medioambientales. En esta misma línea otro elemento a subrayar es una cierta especialización de cada una de estas empresas en una área de la RSE: calidad y seguridad laboral, flexibilidad y ventajas sociales a los trabajadores, participación de los trabajadores en la gestión o sostenibilidad medioambiental.

En cada una de estas areas, dicha especialización opera como ***clave de lectura transversal*** del conjunto de su práctica. A pesar de que las mismas empresas reconocen la especialización de su compañía en un área concreta de la RSE, sostienen que “una cosa lleva a la otra” — trabajar con un stakeholder implica acabar dando pasos hacia los otros.

This is from a text on CSR, where a sample of 3 companies is used as to analyse CSR practices. I am not sure of how best to express 'clave de lectura transversal' in this sentence.

Many thanks in advance!

An option. However this is more likely to be found in philosophy texts, cf. for instance:
"Protevi’s approach to this task is to provide a transversal reading of Derrida and Deleuze,exploring the points at which their thoughts intersect, whilst remaining sensitive tothe singularity of their respective approaches. "
Anyway, I guess it renders the meaning rather accurately.
