CR Magazine compiles its annual ranking of Best Corporate Citizens based on 298 factors for each company on the Russell 1000 index. Data are gathered from publicly available resources for seven key criteria: climate change, environment, employee relations, finance, governance, human rights and philanthropy.
The inaugural list of the "100 Best Corporate Citizens" appeared in Business Ethics Magazine in 1999, and has appeared in CR Magazine (formerly CRO Magazine) since 2007 based on an open and transparent methodology governed by the Corporate Responsibility Officers Association.
