Corporate Responsibility Magazine has named General Motors to its 19th annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens list. Ranked at No. 21, General Motors is the only automaker recognized for standout environmental, social and governance performance.

The designation represents the progress being made on the company’s promise to deliver safer, better and more sustainable solutions for its customers and communities.

“Our business strategy enables us to serve our customers and stakeholders, increase operational efficiency, mitigate risk and improve the environment and our global communities,” said David Tulauskas, director, Sustainability for General Motors. “Sustainability is a part of everything we do and everyone has a role in our success.”

The list documents 260 ESG data points in seven categories gathered from publicly available information. General Motors scored highest in its efforts to address human rights issues and climate change.

"Each year, the 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking measures the success of the Brands Taking Stands movement by celebrating the most successful, most transparent companies that report on their responsible practices,” said Dave Armon, publisher of CR Magazine. “We congratulate those honored on this year's list for their commitment to corporate responsibility."

By setting and striving to meet bold public commitments — such General Motors’ goal to generate or source all electrical power for its global operations with 100 percent renewable energy by 2050 — and demonstrating transparency through reporting, the automaker continues to drive performance and efficiencies.  

In the last year, several other third-party groups have recognized General Motors:
