Newsweek, in partnership with Statista, began with a selection of more than 2,000 companies spanning 14 different industries headquartered in the United States. This selection was then filtered down to the top 300 performing companies by using publicly disclosed data from Corporate Social Responsibility, Sustainability and Corporate Citizenship Reports, as well as from an independent online survey of 6,500 US citizens’ perceptions of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility efforts. Each company was scored across Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance dimensions, resulting in a final Corporate Social Responsibility score.
