Newsweek's Greenest Companies in the World (2012)

Each year Newsweek compiles lists of all things green. This is their fourth annual look at the world's most environmentally-friendly companies. They compared the world’s largest companies according to their environmental footprint, management (policies, initiatives, controversies), and transparency. To generate ratings and compile these lists they partnered with Trucost and Sustainalytics, two leading research companies. The methodology was developed in consultation with an advisory panel of experts in corporate sustainability.
