The “100 Best Corporate Citizens List” was first published in 1999 in Business Ethics Magazine and has been managed by CR Magazine since 2007. To compile the list, every company in the Russell 1000, the highest ranked stocks in the Russell 3000 Index of publicly held U.S. companies, is ranked according to 303 data points. The methodology for generating the list is governed by the Ratings and Rankings Thought Leadership Council of the Corporate Responsibility Association (CRA).
“CR Magazine’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens is the only ranking that doesn’t rely on self-reporting,” said Elliot Clark, CEO of CR Magazine. “Each year, we measure the most transparent companies who report on their responsible practices. We congratulate those honored on this year’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens List for their commitment to corporate responsibility.”
