100 Best Corporate Citizens Named by CR Magazine

CR Magazine has announced the 19th annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens list, recognizing the standout (ESG performance of public US companies. The Top 5: Microsoft, Accenture, Owens Corning, Intel, and Hasbro. See the full list here. Three major themes emerged from this year’s list: 1) In competition for millennials and Gen Z workforce, brands taking stands are "cooler" than companies in business solely to turn a profit. 2) Investor interest in ESG factors: BlackRock's ultimatum to public company CEOs to be better corporate citizens confirmed that ESG investing is here to stay. 3) Jumps in ranking were attributed to deeper integration between sustainability programs and core business.
