Sustainable Corporations Ranking Released to Coincide with the World Economic Forum

The Global 100 claims to be “the most extensive data-driven corporate sustainability assessment in existence”. Launched in 2005 by Toronto-based media company Corporate Knights, this annual clean capitalism ranking is announced each year during the World Economic Forum in Davos. Companies from around the world are ranked according to energy productivity, waste management, water use, CO2 emissions, and a “Clean Capitalism Paylink”, which recognizes companies that link the remuneration of senior executives with the achievement of clean capitalism goals or targets.  Six Canadian companies were listed in the world’s top 100 sustainable companies for 2012: Suncor Energy (ranked 48th); Enbridge (71st); Encana (76th); Nexen (89th); Sun Life Financial (91); and Royal Bank of Canada (95th).
