DuPont Among ‘100 Best Corporate Citizens’
Last week, Corporate Responsibility Magazine issued its 12th annual "100 Best Corporate Citizens
" list. For the second consecutive year, DuPont is on the list, moving up 73 spots this year -- from No. 92 to No. 19. Other companies on the list include 3M, Dow and GE.
Scoring is based on the Large Cap Russell 1,000 list of companies and seven attributes – environment, climate change, human rights, employee relations, corporate governance, philanthropy and financial.
Being among the “100 Best Corporate Citizens” is the latest in a string of DuPont recognitions. DuPont was No. 43 on FORTUNE magazine’s Top 50 “Most Admired Companies” list in 2011. The results will be in the March 21 edition of FORTUNE, which is available on newsstands and online today.
Also, DuPont was named No. 1 in its industry last month on the annual Patent Board Report for the fifth consecutive year.
“Our 60,000 employees can take great pride in these recognitions,” said DuPont Chair & CEO Ellen Kullman. “This distinction among our peers testifies to our commitment to innovation, our core values including high ethical standards, and our inclusivity with customers and other partners to create sustainable solutions that can help address some of the most complex global challenges.”
