CR Magazine's Top 10 Best Corporate Citizens: A New List

CR Magazine has published its fifth annual list of the Top 10 Best Corporate Citizens. You might ask, what’s with all the lists (and rankings, ratings, and awards), each with their own methodology, context, and agenda? A quick response is that they grab readers’ attention in this ADD age. A deeper answer is that we—business professionals, consumers, stakeholders, and engaged citizens—need to know which companies are vouched for as doing well, as evaluated by the many credible organizations who do the hard research work to find out. When the same brands show up repeatedly in different lists, ratings, rankings, and awards, you can bet they’re doing something worthy. It seems worthwhile to draw attention to the best efforts of the leaders in CSR and sustainability, in every way possible.
