Newsweek Green Rankings—one of the world’s foremost assessments of corporate environmental performance
Being green really does matter. Newsweek ranked Tyco as one the Greenest Companies in the U.S. for 2015. Tyco was rated 9th in the Industrials sector and 66th overall in the latest Newsweek Green Rankings of the 500 largest publicly traded companies in the U.S.
One of the world’s most recognized assessments of corporate environmental performance, the Newsweek Green Rankings are based on research by leading socially responsible investment firms, sustainability experts, nongovernmental organizations, and the academic and accounting communities, that evaluated companies on several indicators of sustainability and environmental impact.
The project consists of two separate rankings. The U.S. 500 ranks the 500 largest publicly-traded companies in the United States by market capitalization, while the Global 500 looks at the 500 largest publicly-traded companies globally by market capitalization as determined by Bloomberg as of March 4, 2015.
Companies are scored against their global industry groups peers based on their performance on eight specific key performance indicators (KPIs):
- Combined Energy Productivity
- Combined Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Productivity
- Combined Water Productivity
- Combined Waste Productivity
- Green Revenue Score
- Green Pay Link
- Sustainability Board Committee
- Audited Environmental Metrics
