Corporate Knights Global 100 recognizes sustainability leadership and transparency
Campbell Soup Company (NYSE:CPB) today was named as one of the 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World by Corporate Knights, a media and research company that produces rankings and financial product ratings based on corporate sustainability performance. Ranked number 89, Campbell is one of 23 U.S. companies, and one of only two U.S. food companies, included in the Global 100.
“At Campbell, we are committed to building a more sustainable and resilient food system,” said Stewart Lindsay, Campbell’s Vice President, Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability. “This recognition is a testament to our more than 14,000 employees and the care they show each day for one another and for our customers, consumers, communities and the planet.”
The ranking of corporate sustainability performance is based on “clean revenue” (the percentage of a company’s total revenue derived from products and services that are categorized as “clean” according to Corporate Knights) in addition to resource, employee and financial management, and supplier performance. Corporate Knights analyzed 6,914 companies with more than $1 billion (USD) in revenues to create the list.
Campbell performed particularly well in the areas of clean revenue, employee safety, employee benefits and executive and board diversity.
Campbell has long been recognized as a leader in transparency and corporate responsibility. Earlier this month, the company was named one of America’s Most JUST Companies by JUST Capital and CNBC. In 2021, Campbell was named one of America’s Most Responsible Companies by Newsweek, one of America’s Best Employers for Diversity by Forbes and a Champion of Board Diversity by the Forum of Executive Women.
