Agilent has been ranked 24 on the Global 100 list of the most sustainable large corporations in 2012. The ranking is the most transparent, quantitatively driven corporate sustainability assessment in the world. Of the 100 companies chosen, only eight were from the United States. Selection criteria, more stringent than in past years, include performance in energy, water, carbon and waste, safety, innovation and leadership diversity.
Corporate Knights, the Toronto-based media and investment research company that initiated and oversees the project, announced the 2012 list at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on January 23rd.
Recently recognized as the world’s most credible corporate sustainability ranking, the Global 100 consists of the 100 top-performing stocks worldwide on a range of sector-specific ‘sustainability’ metrics.
