Methodology on sustainable scoring

This is the sixth year Barron’s has published its list of companies with the highest ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) scores. Barron’s partnered with Calvert, a leader in ESG investing, to build the list of the most sustainable companies. Calvert evaluated the 1,000 largest publicly traded companies by market value, then ranked each by how they performed for five key constituencies: shareholders, employees, customers, community and the planet. It also reviewed more than 230 ESG performance indicators from seven rating companies, including ISS, MSCI, and Sustainalytics, along with additional data. Calvert also ranked companies in 230 ESG performance indicators including workplace diversity and greenhouse gas emissions.
