ZURICH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RepRisk, the leading provider of research and business intelligence on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) and business conduct risks, is proud to announce that its data served as an input to develop the 2017 list of America’s Most JUST Companies, established by JUST Capital in partnership with Forbes.
Based on surveys conducted on public attitude towards corporate behavior, the ranking provides information on how the US’s largest publicly traded corporations are performing on the issues of worker compensation and treatment, product and environmental impact, ethical sourcing and supply chains, transparency, and more.
RepRisk’s data on the ESG risk exposure of companies is used as an input to JUST Capital’s model of corporate JUSTness, which, together with the results from the surveys, feeds into the annual ranking. On a daily basis, RepRisk captures and analyzes information in 16 languages from media, stakeholders, and other public sources external to a company, taking a unique outside-in approach to assessing a company’s performance.
“We identify and collect the most robust data available across a diverse range of sources on the issues identified through our polling and seek to tell as accurate and unbiased a story as possible about the largest publicly-traded U.S. companies,” said Michelle Mullineaux, Managing Director, Marketing at JUST Capital. “By helping corporate leaders understand what issues matter most to the public and where they stand relative to America’s Most JUST Companies on those issues, we hope to provide a clear, data-driven map for how to build a more just economy that better serves the needs of all people.”
