Owens Corning (NYSE: OC) earned the top spot on the 100 Best Corporate Citizens list for 2021, announced today by 3BL Media. The company was also No. 1 in 2020 and 2019, making it the first to earn the top ranking for three consecutive years.
"Earning the top honor for a third year in a row demonstrates our commitment to doing more," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Brian Chambers. "An achievement like this isn’t the product of any individual team or business. It reflects the efforts of all 19,000 of our employees working together every day to do more for our customers and our world."
The annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens list recognizes outstanding environmental, social and governance (ESG) transparency and performance among the 1,000 largest, publicly traded U.S. companies.
"At Owens Corning, we are driven to make the world a better place – and our sustainability aspirations reflect that drive," said Senior Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer Frank O’Brien-Bernini. "We know we can make a difference through our work, and being placed at the top of the 100 Best Corporate Citizens list illustrates the tangible impact of integrating sustainability and ESG into our business. This recognition inspires us to go further faster, in all forms of collaborations, to shape the future we desire."
The 2021 ranking is based on 146 factors spanning eight pillar categories: employees, environment, climate change, stakeholders and society, human rights, ESG performance, governance, and financial. Owens Corning ranked first among all companies in three categories (climate change, human rights, and ESG performance) and placed among the top five in all but three of the eight categories. The list ranks companies in the Russell 1000 Index based upon research by ISS ESG, the responsible investment research arm of Institutional Shareholder Services. Information for the ranking is compiled exclusively from publicly available resources and companies do not pay for the assessment.
Details about how Owens Corning operates, as well as its sustainability commitments and progress, can be found in the company’s 2020 Sustainability Report, which was released in April 2021.
