The 2017 Most Responsible Companies Ranked by Industry Sector – Energy
CR Magazine has put together its annual set of the “2017 Most Responsible Companies Ranked by Industry Sector” list. This list serves to help readers establish that their supply chain is comprised of the most responsible, sustainable, and transparent companies—creating shared value when strategic opportunities arise. In past years, this ranked list includes the top 12 companies in all 11 industry categories. This year, we are going to break down the list to feature one industry sector per magazine, to bring more attention to the category as a whole. In this issue we focus on “Energy.
For these compilations, we use the same methodology as the “100 Best Corporate Citizens List,” with one additional data slice. The Best Corporate Citizens database comprises publicly available data from Russell 1000 companies collected and analyzed by IW Financial, a Portland, Maine-based financial analysis firm serving the environment, social, and governance (ESG) investment community.
For the “2017 Most Responsible Companies Ranked by Industry Sector” list, we identify the industry sectors with high representation among the Russell 1000, our starting point for our database. We narrow those to 11 total and apply the same review process to the companies on those sector lists as we do for the 100 Best Corporate Citizens List.
