The list, presented by Newsweek and global research firm Statista, Inc., recognizes the top 500 most responsible companies in the U.S. across 14 industry subcategories. America’s Most Responsible Companies were selected based on publicly available key performance indicators derived from CSR Reports, Sustainability Reports, and Corporate Citizenship Reports, as well as an independent survey.
