The America’s Most Responsible Companies 2020 title serves to reinforce your reputation as a company that strives
to be an excellent corporate citizen and can be incorporated into your marketing strategies in several ways.


For the first time, Newsweek and Statista are honoring America’s Most Responsible Companies based on publicly available
key performance indicators derived from CSR Reports, Sustainability Reports, and Corporate Citizenship Reports as well as
an independent survey.

The analysis was carried out in a 4 phase process, starting in June 2019 with a pool of over 2,000 companies that were screened by different criteria (e.g. a published CSR-Report, Sustainability Report or similar including data for 2017 or later years). All the companies that passed the pre screening have been analyzed in detail. The detailed analysis consisted of an independent survey among 6,500 U.S. citizens and research based on publicly available key performance indicators derived from Corporate Annual Reports, CSR Reports, Sustainability Reports, and Corporate Citizenship Reports. The independent survey was administered using an online access panel. The survey took an average of 10 minutes to complete and the field period ran in August and September 2019.

The detailed analysis covered three areas of Corporate Social Responsibility:

  • Environmental
  • Social
  • Corporate Governance

For each company, a score was calculated based on the performance in the survey as well as the analysis of KPI’s. The 300 companies with the highest scores have been awarded as the Amercia's Most Responsible Companies 2020. The final list recognizes the top 300 most responsible companies in the United States, spanning 14 industries:

    • Automotive & Components,
    • Capital Goods,
    • Consumer Goods,
    • Energy & Utilities,
    • Entertainment, Leisure & Dining,
