Commitment to the environment, ethical business practices and corporate citizenship recognized.
HOUSTON – June 1, 2017 – Waste Management has been named to Corporate Responsibility (CR) Magazine’s list of the 100 Best Corporate Citizens, which ranks public companies based on outstanding corporate responsibility and sustainability performance across the United States.
Being a good corporate citizen is a goal of most leading organizations, but actually achieving this can be a challenge in today’s business climate. There are many working pieces of a responsible operation – risk management, diversity and inclusion, and the supply chain, for example, that make efficient and effective operations quite onerous. So when a company succeeds at being transparent, responsible and accountable – with all aspects backed up by data – they end up earning a coveted spot on Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens List.
The rankings are based on 260 data points of disclosure and performance measures, taken from publicly available information in seven categories: environment, climate change, employee relations, human rights, governance, finance and philanthropy. The list ranks the Russell 1000 Index.
