LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CBRE Group, Inc. (NYSE:CBRE) has been ranked #13 on the Barron’s 2020 list of the 100 Most Sustainable Companies in the U.S., up from #33 in 2019.
The list was based on an independent analysis of the 1,000 largest publicly held companies by market value with headquarters in the U.S., and reflects performance across the spectrum of Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) metrics. This is the third consecutive year that CBRE has been named a Barron’s Most Sustainable Company, and #13 is the highest ranking the company has achieved.
“CBRE’s continued rise on the Barron’s list reflects the progress we’ve made in adopting strong ESG practices across our company, as well as the programs we are helping our clients to implement. As the world’s largest manager of commercial properties, we are particularly well positioned to help building owners and occupiers achieve sustainability goals, including reducing their carbon footprint while realizing cost and operational efficiencies,” said Bob Sulentic, president and chief executive officer of CBRE.
Barron’s, a U.S. financial publication, produced the 100 Most Sustainable Companies list in conjunction with Calvert Research and Management. The 1,000 largest publicly held U.S. companies were scored on more than 230 key ESG indicators across five categories: shareholders, employees, customers, planet and community.
