Forbes calls the Just 100, “a report card for corporate America, the 100 companies that are setting the standard in just behavior; if more corporations follow their lead, short term profits could translate into long term wealth for more Americans.”
The rankings encompass nearly 1,000 of the largest publicly-traded companies in the US and are based on comprehensive surveys conducted on public attitudes toward corporate behavior, involving 9,000 American respondents in 2018 and more than 81,000 during the past four years.
“We’re honored to be recognized by Forbes and Just Capital as one of the top companies in their America’s Most Just Company list,” said David Taylor, chairman of the board, president and CEO. “Being a good corporate citizen is foundational to who we are as a company. We give back to communities where we live and work, start conversations that enable inclusion and equality, and strive to do the right thing for the environment. We’re proud to do our part to make a positive difference in the world and be a force for good and a force for growth.”
“America’s Most Just Companies consistently outperform their peers in job creation, wages, work-life balance, environmental impact, and return on equity,” added Martin Whittaker, chief executive officer of Just Capital. “Aligning corporate behavior with the priorities of the American people is good for communities and good for business.”
This recognition comes on the heels of P&G’s ranking by the Drucker Institute as one of the most effectively managed companies in America. P&G ranked in the top 10 among hundreds of Fortune 500, S&P 500 and other large-cap companies evaluated on overall corporate effectiveness.
