MILWAUKEE, Apr. 18 /CSRwire/ - Johnson Controls today announced its fifth-place ranking in Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s 13th annual “100 Best Corporate Citizens List.” The company ranked fifth based on its performance in seven key areas: Environment, climate change, human rights, philanthropy, employee relations, financial and governance.

“We are honored to be ranked number five by Corporate Responsibility Magazine in its annual Best Corporate Citizens list,” said Stephen A. Roell, chairman and chief executive officer of Johnson Controls.  “This achievement is due to our employees who bring the spirit and focus of CR Magazine’s criteria for this ranking to their work every day.  As a company, we are committed to the environment, human rights and the communities where our employees live and work.”

According to Elliot Clark, CEO of SharedXpertise Media, which publishes CR Magazine and produces the Commit!Forum, “This is the 13th annual CR Magazine ‘100 Best Corporate Citizen’s List,’ and we are gratified to see improved consistency among the transparency leaders in the Russell 1000. This demonstrates the continuing commitment on the part of these companies to better accountability and citizenship practices.”

The “100 Best Corporate Citizens List” was first published in 1999 in Business Ethics Magazine, and has been managed by CRO and Corporate Responsibility Magazine since 2007. In order to compile the list, every company in the Russell 1000, the highest ranked stocks in the Russell 3000 Index of publicly held U.S. companies, is ranked according to over 320 data points of information. The methodology for generating the list is governed by a Methodology Committee of the Corporate Responsibility Officers Association (CROA).
