Six Westchester County firms and three in Fairfield County have been named to Newsweek’s list of “America’s Most Responsible Companies.”
The list, compiled with Statista, was based on publicly available key performance indicators derived from corporate social responsibility (CSR) reports, sustainability reports, and corporate citizenship reports as well as an independent survey. Analysis covered three CSR subsectors: Environmental, social and corporate governance.
The survey evaluated 2,000 U.S. public companies, with the top 300 making the final cut.
