This week, Cisco was again included in the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations – a select group of the world’s most sustainable large-cap companies based on 12 indicators, including energy, innovation, corporate governance issues, and diversity.
Cisco was #1 in the IT category and 11th overall, up from 20th last year. The Global 100 were chosen from a starting universe of more than 4000 companies worldwide.
In its tenth year, the Global 100 has come to be a widely followed analysis of corporate sustainability. Companies named to the Global 100 are the top overall sustainability performers in their respective industrial sectors.
The index is compiled by Corporate Knights, a Toronto-based media and investment advisory company, and announced each year during the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland.
