100 Best Corporate Citizens (2010)



Sponsor: Corporate Responsibility Magazine

Description:
“Corporate Responsibility Magazine (the new name of CRO Magazine) announces its 11th annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens List, known as the world’s top corporate responsibility ranking based on publicly-available information and recognized by PR Week as one of America’s top three most-important business rankings.”

Methodology:
“In 2009, the members of the CRO Association’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens Methodology Committee—co-chaired by Eaton’s Joseph Wolfsberger and Miami University of Ohio’s Brian Ballou and Dan Heitger—met a total of eight times to openly debate how the List should be run…As in 2008 and 2009, the data was gathered from 100-percent, publicly-available sources and computed by IW Financial, the Portland, Maine-based financial analysis firm serving the ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) investment community. Data in each category is of two types: true/false or numerical. “True” counts as a positive value, “False” counts as a negative value, and “no answer” counts as neutral. Numerical values are compared with all of the companies’ other numerical answers in order to generate a ranking.”
