NEW YORK, Dec. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- For the second year in a row, S&P Global (NYSE: SPGI) is one of America's Most Responsible Companies, according to Newsweek. The annual list recognizes companies with a demonstrated commitment to strong corporate citizenship.
"We're pleased to be one of America's Most Responsible Companies, acknowledging our efforts to serve all of our stakeholders," said Douglas L. Peterson, President & CEO of S&P Global. "As we work to accelerate progress in the world, it's imperative that we do so prudently and responsibly. By creating a diverse and inclusive workplace, reducing our environmental footprint and upholding the highest standards of corporate governance, we can power thriving global communities with greater opportunity for all."
S&P Global ranks among the top 15 percent of companies recognized in 2021, and has moved up the list by more than 30 places since last year's ranking. The Company recently marked several milestones:

To identify the 400 most responsible companies, Newsweek and Statista screened the 2,000 largest U.S. public companies (by revenue) that publish a corporate responsibility or ESG report. Analysts also assessed publicly available performance data in the environmental, social and corporate governance categories, and conducted a survey asking 7,500 U.S. citizens about their perceptions of the companies related to corporate social responsibility. The full methodology is available for reference.
