OSHKOSH, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK) today announced that it has once again been named one of Barron’s “100 Most Sustainable Companies.” First launched in February 2018, this ranking highlights U.S. companies who are leading the way in environmental, social and corporate governance factors.
The Barron’s ranking was created in partnership with Calvert Research and Management, an arm of Eaton Vance. They focused on the 1,000 largest publicly traded companies by market value that are headquartered in the United States. The group then reviewed and rated each company based on five stakeholder categories: shareholders, employees, customers, planet and community. Looking at more than 230 performance indicators throughout this process, Calvert rated each company between 0-100 in each category and then calculated the company’s overall rating. Oshkosh Corporation came in at number 17 on the list.
“In the Oshkosh Corporation Family, we view sustainability holistically. It’s embedded into our strategic planning, manufacturing operations, community engagement efforts and is part of our People First culture,” said Ignacio A. Cortina, Oshkosh Corporation Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary. “Receiving this award for the second consecutive year highlights our commitment to sustainability excellence.”
In addition to being named one of the Top 100 “Most Sustainable Companies,” Oshkosh Corporation is proud to be included in The Sustainability Yearbook 2019.
