November 30, -0001

A number of household and personal product marketers have been named toCorporate Responsibility Officer (CRO) magazine’s 10th annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens List. Making the list this year were P&G (No. 14), Avon Products (No. 18), Schering-Plough (No. 36), Sara Lee (No. 38), Colgate-Palmolive (No. 73) and Limited Brands (No. 76).

CRO’s list is based on 100% publicly-available information and ranks Russell 1000 companies on their performance in seven key areas: environment, climate change, human rights, philanthropy, employee relations, financial and governance.

Avon’s ranking is a substantial improvement over the company’s 2008 and 2007 rankings due to renewed focus on reporting and transparency, which helps spotlight Avon’s established efforts in corporate responsibility, according CRO.

“During these tumultuous economic times, it is especially meaningful that Avon is maintaining a commitment to corporate responsibility while continuing to focus on the core business and financial sustainability,” said Susan Heaney, director of corporate responsibility for Avon. “We are proud to receive this recognition of both our corporate responsibility efforts and our expanded transparency to stakeholders.”

The top 10 companies in the CRO ranking were: Bristol Myers-Squibb, General Mills, IBM, Merck, HP, Cisco Systems, Mattel, Abbott Laboratories, Kimberly Clark and Entergy.
