Supplementary notes

To produce the Green Rankings, Newsweek partnered with Corporate Knights. The ranking is designed to rank large public companies on environmental metrics in a rules-based way that meets the test of being replicable by a third party.

With this in mind, the methodology is designed to be consistent with the following six principles: transparency, objectivity, public availability of data, comparability, engagement with eligible companies, stakeholder inclusion.
The U.S. 500 consists of an assessment of the sustainability performance of the 500 largest publicly-traded companies headquartered in the U.S. by revenue as at 31 December 2016.
