For the third consecutive year, Corporate Responsibility (CR) Magazine has named Ingersoll Rand to its 17th annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens list. This year we moved to the No. 78 position on the list from last year’s No. 95 – a 17-point improvement.
“Ingersoll Rand’s placement on the 2016 100 Best Corporate Citizens List demonstrates that our formula is working well and further underscores the strength of our strategy, innovation and the commitment of our employees to help our customers meet their goals and make the world a better place to live,” said Gary Michel, senior vice president and president of our Residential HVAC business.
“We are pleased to be recognized for our transparency and responsible business practices and will continue to work tirelessly to solidify our position as a leader in global corporate citizenship,” he continued.
Ingersoll Rand is named to the list based on our disclosure and performance in seven key areas: climate change, employee relations, environmental, financial, governance, human rights and philanthropy.
“CR Magazine’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens is the only ranking that doesn’t rely on self-reporting,” said Elliot Clark, CEO of CR Magazine. “Each year, we measure the most transparent companies who report on their responsible practices. We congratulate those honored on this year’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens List for their commitment to corporate responsibility.”
About the List
The 100 Best Corporate Citizens List was first published in 1999 in Business Ethics Magazine, and has been managed by CR Magazine since 2007.
Every company in the Russell 1000 index – the highest ranked stocks in the Russell 3000 Index of publicly held U.S. companies – is ranked according to 260 data points. The methodology for generating the list is governed by the Ratings and Rankings Thought Leadership Council of the Corporate Responsibility Association (CRA).
Earlier this year, Ingersoll Rand was recognized on FORTUNE Magazine’s 2016 World’s Most Admired Companies list, for the fourth consecutive year. We ranked No. 4 for our Industrial Machinery category and were also named to the top 10 Social Responsibility category among all Most Admired companies.
