Methodology
Our corporate ranking was a four-phase process. First, we created a pool of candidates. We selected the 2,000 largest public companies by revenue in the U.S.—banks and insurance companies were measured by total assets more than $50 billion. Next we screened. Only companies that had published a document the same or similar to a Corporate Responsibility Report were considered (Corporate Citizen Report or Sustainability Report, for example). Some companies whose primary business is in the defense industry were eliminated as were companies involved in lawsuits or government regulatory actions. Part three of the process was a detailed analysis of the companies consisting of two parts. The first: We focused on publicly available performance data in the environmental, social and corporate governance categories. We also conducted a survey, asking 7,500 U.S. citizens about their perceptions of the companies related to corporate social responsibility. All elements were weighted to produce a final score.
