JP Morgan, Starbucks and Chevron Top Industry Corporate Citizenry Rankings

JP Morgan Chase & Co., Starbucks Corp. and Chevron Corp. are three of the winners named in Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s 10 Best Corporate Citizens rankings by industry.

The winners in each category are:

  • Financials/Insurance/Real Estate – JPMorgan Chase & Co.
  • Information Technology – International Business Machines Corp.
  • Materials – E.I. DuPont De Nemours & Co.
  • Customer Items – Mattel, Inc.
  • Media & Entertainment – Starbucks Corp.
  • Business Services – Accenture Plc.
  • Consumer Staples – Campbell Soup Co.
  • Utilities – Pinnacle West Capital Corp.
  • Energy – Chevron Corp.
  • Healthcare – Bristol-Myers Squibb Co.

The magazine releases an annual top 100 corporate citizens list, which this year was won by Johnson Controls, but this is the first time the magazine has released a ranking of industry-specific top tens.

Corporate Responsibility has also named the winners of its Responsible CEO of the Year awards.

The winners of the 2011 awards are:

  • Donald Knauss, Chairman and CEO of The Clorox Company
  • Fred Krupp, President of the Environmental Defense Fund
  • Paul Rooke, Chairman and CEO of Lexmark

In July, the magazine released its first ever “Black List” of the Russell 1000 companies that tied for bottom ranking when compiling information for the top 100.

DreamWorks, Nasdaq and Madison Square Garden were three of the 58 companies named-and-shamed.

  1. They have got to be kidding about Chevron after the debacle in Ecuador. Chevron should pay the multi-billion dollar fine levelled against them by the Ecuadorian courts to clean up the mess they made in the Amazon.
    Perhaps the reason that Chevron won the Energy sector is that Shell has a horrific mess in the Niger delta, BP did in the Gulf, and Syncrude has the most envionmentally damaging energy project in history in northern Alberta at the Tar Sands. Couldn’t they have picked a clean energy company?

  2. I tell you, the average person on the street paying attention to ESG data as reported in the corporate responsibility reports or as parlayed by Bloomberg, Forrester and other business analysis and reporting outfits could do a better job identifying good corporate citizens than this magazine. I guess the magazine is, as previously suggested, an “inside job.”

  3. J P Morgan Chase & Co – aren’t they part of the system that failed and that is why we have a financial global meltdown????

  4. EL, you actually printed this? J P Morgan Chase and Chevron have to be some of the worst corporations on the planet. This puts a troubling stain on the entire CSR process.

  5. The rankings are based on how well each company DISCLOSES its CSR information, not how well they’re performing in that area. That being said, they’re supposed to give yellow/red cards to companies who have legal penalties against them, so not sure how Chevron managed to do so well – maybe they don’t consider penalties outside the US?

  6. Not sure what you mean, John. We’re reporting on the results of the award. We’re not in the business of only reporting positive CSR news.
