Best American Companies: Corporate Accountability

This is CR’s list of America's Best Corporate Citizens. These companies are ranked in terms of corporate accountability. Company performance is rated in each of the following seven categories: climate change, employee relations, environmental, financial, governance, human rights, and philanthropy. There are subcategories within each category including things like disclosure, policy and performance. Each of the categories is not equally weighted. In this assessment employee relations and environmental performance are given the most weight while governance is given the least.

To create this list CR started with the Russell 1000 of the U.S. companies with the largest market capitalization. Data is collected on each company by a variety of means including an extensive questionnaire. Out of the 300 companies that responded to the questionnaire CR narrowed the list down to the top 100 financially successful companies:
