More than 51% of the income of the companies in the ranking comes from sustainable projects
In this edition of the ranking, the twentieth of the publication, the numbers support the growing commitment of multinationals from around the globe to the development of sustainability policies. The average investment in sustainable projects of these 100 companies was 55% in fiscal year 2022, up from 47% the previous year. And 51% of the income of these companies was generated in projects of this type, compared to 50% the previous year.
This ranking is built by collecting data from 38 different industry groups based on 25 different metrics. The metrics vary depending on the industry, explains Corporate Knights, and is calculated in percentage terms and by comparing with a control group from the same area, the position that this company occupies in its sector, its carbon production, the percentage of taxes paid, the ratio between what a CEO earns and an average employee, the diversity on the board of directors or the income received from sustainable projects.
From this calculation, the grades organized by letter emerge, where the companies with the highest score fall in A and those with the worst grade fall in D-. Companies in the health and care industry move in a range that goes from B to C-.
