Voya Financial Named in Top 3 on Barron’s 2020 Ranking of the 100 Most Sustainable Companies

February 10, 2020 GMT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 10, 2020--

Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VOYA), is ranked third on Barron’s 2020 list of the 100 Most Sustainable Companies and received the highest ranking for a financial services company for the second year in a row.

Voya’s ranking on the list has improved in each of the past three years – moving up from No. 6 in 2019 and from No. 46 in 2018 – which was the inaugural year that Barron’s published the list. The rankings are designed to provide information on factors that affect investment risk and performance, and that are of interest to investors.

“It’s an honor to earn this recognition – No. 3 overall and, for the second consecutive year, the highest-ranked financial services firm – from Barron’s for Voya’s commitment to sustainability,” said Rodney O. Martin, Jr., chairman and CEO. “Voya’s culture and the character of our brand are differentiators in a business environment where all stakeholders are increasingly making decisions that are critical to our business based on how they view a company through the lens of sustainability.”

To determine the rankings, Calvert Research and Management, an arm of Eaton Vance, assesses the 1,000 largest publicly held companies by market value. Calvert calculates the rankings by measuring sustainability performance based on more than 230 indicators across five categories: shareholders, employees, customers, planet and community.

More information about Barron’s ranking of the 100 Most Sustainable Companies can be found on the Barron’s website.
