Hormel Foods Corporation recently announced that it has been named one of the 100 Best Corporate Citizens by 3BL Media. The 2022 ranking recognizes outstanding environmental, social and governance (ESG) transparency and performance among the 1,000 largest U.S. public companies. Hormel Foods has been included on the 100 Best Corporate Citizens list 13 times.
The 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking is based on 155 ESG factors in eight pillars: climate change, employee relations, environment, finance, governance, human rights, stakeholders and society, and ESG performance.
Using a methodology developed by 3BL Media, all Russell 1000 Index companies are researched by ISS ESG, the responsible investment research arm of Institutional Shareholder Services. To compile the ranking, corporate data and information is obtained from publicly available sources only, rather than questionnaires or company submissions. Companies have the option to verify data collected for the ranking. Data and information used in the 2022 edition of the 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking is from March 19, 2021, to March 18, 2022.
