“We are proud to announce this year’s list which recognizes companies that are successfully addressing the sustainability considerations material to improving long-term shareholder value,” said Von Hughes, Managing Director and Head of Calvert. “Calvert has an innovative research system, with an intense focus on financial materiality, depth of coverage, and comprehensive, proprietary data analysis. The system effectively identifies high-performing companies that can be catalysts for positive change, and, in doing so, is the foundation of our leadership in providing responsible investing solutions for our clients.”

About the List:

  • To construct the list, the largest 1,000 publicly traded U.S. companies, excluding real estate investment trusts, are scored on a variety of ESG measures by Calvert’s industry-specific research anaylsts. The team analyzes data from a variety of providers and Calvert’s own internal research with a focus on financial materiality, reviewing over 230 defined key performance indicators that are correlated with financial performance.
  • Each of the 1,000 companies is rated on its demonstrated responsibility in five key stakeholder categories: shareholders, employees, customers, community, and planet. Each company received a rating of zero to 100 in each stakeholder category, based on Calvert’s proprietary analysis and scoring methodology.
  • An overall rating for each company was calculated using a weighted average of the five key stakeholder categories. The weightings were based on Calvert’s assessment of the financial materiality of each stakeholder category within the company’s industry peer group. To make the list, a company had to be rated above the bottom quarter in each material stakeholder category.
