‘Newsweek’ to rank 100 ‘greenest’ companies

By Published on .

New York—Newsweek said Thursday that it plans to rank the 100 “greenest” companies in the U.S. in its Sept. 21 issue.

“Companies are more aware than ever that consumers and investors really care about environmental impact,” Kathleen Deveny, Newsweek’s global business editor, said in a statement.

In compiling the rankings, Newsweek is evaluating each company’s greenhouse gas emissions, toxic waste emissions and use of natural resources, among other criteria. It is also assessing the companies’ management of environmental issues and policies, regulatory compliance and policies concerning climate change.

The rankings will also factor in the results of an exclusive “reputation survey” among CEOs, corporate social responsibility officers, members of the media, academics and members of environmental groups.
