US Firms Lead 2015 Sustainability Yearbook

2015 Sustainability YearbookNine US-based companies including Alcoa, Ball Corp and Wyndham Worldwide won gold medals for sustainability in the 2015 RobecoSAM Sustainability Yearbook.

The annual yearbook looks at companies’ sustainability performance in 2014, includes the best 15 percent per industry and ranks them gold, silver or bronze. The top performing company from each of the 59 industries analyzed is awarded RobecoSAM industry leader status.

Other gold class winners in the US are Owens Corning, Biogen Idec, Abbott Laboratories, Agilent Technologies and Spectra Energy. Each of these firms were named industry leaders as well.

In total RobecoSAM has awarded 69 gold class medals, 54 silver class medals and 112 bronze class medals.

Split by region, Europe holds the greatest number of companies included in the Yearbook (211) as well as the most gold class medal winners (33). Asia Pacific has 99 companies included and 16 gold medal winners; North America has 93 companies included and 11 gold medal winners; and emerging markets have 54 companies included with 9 gold medal winners.

Last year the US had the most (10) gold winners as well, including repeat winners Abbott, Alcoa, Ball Corp, Owens Corning and Spectra Energy.

  1. It would seem that the ranking of Spectra Energy among the 10 gold winners flies in the face of the company’s consistent lack of transparency in both how it goes about in the construction of its pipelines in environmentally and safety sensitive areas, and its total disregard for complete transparency in its reporting of leaks and similar events. If Spectra is among the gold winners, they must be using Pyrite instead of the real McCoy.
