Green 2015

The Newsweek Green Rankings are one of the world’s most recognized assessments of corporate environmental performance. Based on research from Corporate Knights Capital and HIP (Human Impact + Profit)  Investor Inc., the 2015 iteration of the project features eight indicators that are used to assess and measure the environmental performance of the world’s largest publicly traded companies.

The project consists of two separate rankings. The U.S. 500 ranks the 500 largest publicly-traded companies in the United States by market capitalization, while the Global 500 looks at the 500 largest publicly-traded companies globally by market capitalization as determined by Bloomberg as of March 4, 2015.
