Newsweek magazine will release its 4th annual Green Rankings on October 22nd. In collaboration with research firms Trucost and Sustainalytics, the magazine will again evaluate the environmental performance of the largest publicly traded companies in the U.S. and around the world.
Published annually since 2009, the rankings provide a rigorous, cross-industry framework for comparing the environmental commitment and performance of major companies.
The Green Rankings assess companies based on a variety of environmental criteria, including greenhouse-gas emissions, water withdrawal, waste, emissions, and natural-resource use, as well as on corporate policies, programs, and initiatives related to the environment. The rankings also include an assessment of each company's environmental disclosure and transparency. The rankings comprise two lists: one that surveys the 500 biggest companies in the United States, and another of the 500 largest companies in the world (including the U.S.).
Last year's U.S. winner was IBM, with HP, Sprint, Baxter, Dell, Johnson & Johnson, Accenture, Office Depot, CA Technologies, and Nvidia rounding out the top 10. Munich Re topped the global list.
Newsweek and its data partners will be reaching out to companies from 20th June - 31st July.
