The National Conference on Citizenship (NCoC) and Points of Light, the nation’s definitive experts on civic engagement, in partnership with Bloomberg LP named Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold as one of The Civic 50. This is a comprehensive ranking of S&P 500 companies that best use their time, talent and resources to improve the quality of life in the communities where they do business.

An article about The Civic 50 appears in the November 12-18, 2012 issue of Bloomberg Businessweek. The full Civic 50 ranking is posted on Businessweek.com.

Companies were evaluated on seven specific metrics: leadership, measurement and strategy, design, employee civic growth, community partnerships, cause alignment and transparency. Winning companies employed increasingly sophisticated tools to measure the impact of community engagement and alignment of these programs with their business’ core competencies.
