Newsweek announced today that it has initiated its review of publically-traded companies for its 2012 Green Rankings. This is the fourth annual evaluation of the environmental performance of the world’s largest companies, which will be released on October 22, 2012.
The Newsweek Green Rankings are recognized as a leading assessment of the environmental performance of companies in America and around the world. Newsweek’s Sustainability Rankings are the result of a rigorous, peer-reviewed research process, including both quantitative and qualitative assessment of environmental impacts, management, and communication practices. The rankings provide a cross-industry framework for comparing the environmental commitment and performance of major companies.
An initial assessment of annual reports, 10-K, CSR reports, and websites, is already underway by Trucost and Sustainalytics. Initial analyses of ranked companies will be available for review beginning in early June, and the deadline for companies to submit additional data or feedback for consideration is July 31, 2012.
Stay tuned — Newsweek will hold a webinar in early June for anyone who wants to learn more about the Newsweek Green Rankings.
