Owens Corning (NYSE: OC) ranked No. 1 on Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens list for 2019. This is the fifth consecutive year Owens Corning has been named to the list. In 2018, the company ranked third.
“It is an honor to earn the No. 1 ranking on this year’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens list,” said Owens Corning Chief Executive Officer Brian Chambers. “Our team is committed to living our purpose, that our people and our products make the world a better place.”
The 20th annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens list recognizes the standout global environmental, social and governance (ESG) performances of the largest U.S.-based public companies. The companies are ranked based on a blend of what they disclose and the fact that they disclose it.
Ava Harter, Owens Corning general counsel, added: “We are pleased to be recognized for our ongoing commitment to transparency and high standards as we strive to make a positive difference in the world. This list puts us in great company. We know this recognition doesn’t mark a destination reached, but rather that we are making tangible progress on this journey.”
Details about how Owens Corning operates, as well as its sustainability commitments and progress, can be found in the company’s 2018 Sustainability Report, which was released earlier today.
The 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking is based on 134 corporate disclosure and performance factors in seven categories: climate change, employee relations, environment, finance, governance, human rights, and stakeholders and society.
The list ranks companies in the Russell 1000 Index based upon research by ISS-ESG, the responsible investment research arm of Institutional Shareholder Services. Information for the ranking is compiled exclusively from publicly available resources and companies do not pay for the assessment.
