HOUSTON—Waste Management has been named to Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s prestigious 100 Best Corporate Citizens list for the fifth consecutive year. The 20th annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens list recognizes standout environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance of public companies across the United States.
“At Waste Management, we work every day to serve and support our communities, stakeholders and world,” said Jim Fish, President and CEO of Waste Management. “This recognition reaffirms our commitment to operate responsibly and respectfully – and to the highest environmental, social and ethical standards. It also inspires us to continue our quest for sustainable solutions, collaborative community partnerships and a vibrant future.”
The 100 Best Corporate Citizens list documents 260 ESG data points of disclosure and performance measures in seven categories: environment, climate change, employee relations, human rights, governance, finance and philanthropy and community support. The list ranks the Russell 1000 Index, a roster of the 1,000 largest U.S. public companies.
Transparency, Public Commitments
“U.S. corporate leadership matters more than ever to drive progress despite government gridlock around environmental and social topics like climate change,” said Dave Armon, CEO, 3BL Media. “Transparency and public commitments make corporate responsibility and sustainability programs stronger.”
“This commendation by CR Magazine is thanks to hard-working, hard-driving men and women of Waste Management,” said Fish. “Our team is dedicated to making a difference—on the job, in our neighborhoods and throughout North America.”
