Newsweek Who’s Green?

Newsweek is the list many look up to regarding a heavy analysis of who in the world has accomplished the most in going green. Carlos Barria from Reuters explains how this works. The methodology for the 2017 Newsweek Green Rankings 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.
Principle 1: Transparency
The precise methodology of the ranking and the results of the process are fully disclosed.
Principle 2: Objectivity
Eligible companies will only be assessed using quantitative data and performance indicators.
Principle 3: Public availability of data
Only data-points that are part of the public domain are used.
Principle 4: Comparability
Companies are compared to their industry group peers based on performance indicators for
which the underlying data are reasonably well disclosed by their industry group globally.
Principle 5: Engagement with eligible companies
Companies eligible for the ranking will be informed prior to the ranking, so as to have an opportunity to ensure the necessary data is made available publicly.
Principle 6: Stakeholder inclusion
Feedback from broader stakeholder community is actively solicited via rankings web site.
Scope:
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.
