The 2016 Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World (Global 100) Index was announced today at the World Economic Forum and Adobe once again made the list.
The Global 100 spotlights the world’s top performers in overall sustainability across all industries. It’s compiled by Canadian-based media and research company Corporate Knights, and starts with more than 4,000 companies with a market capitalization greater than US $2 billion. The final list is determined using 12 quantitative sustainability indicators cited by the Branding Institute for relevance, insight, trustworthiness and convincing methodology.
Toby Heaps, the CEO of Corporate Knights said “Global 100 companies strive to make the world a better place; and they are where people want to work, buy from and invest in for the long term.”
Vince Digneo, Adobe’s Sustainability Strategist commented that Adobe practices a holistic approach to conserving resources that involves our employees and operations, customers and products, and the communities where we operate. “We take pride in being one of the companies leading the way toward a low carbon economy through sound, practical and meaningful goals. “
Just a few weeks ago Adobe joined RE100 and announced our commitment to The White House’s American Business Act on Climate Pledge. As a part of these actions, we are committing to ambitious goals that will help contribute to a low-carbon, sustainable future.
We also achieved (to our delight) the highest possible score – 100 – in the CDP 2015 Global Climate Change Report and the company was again named to The Climate A List, along with only 112 other companies from around the world that scored highest in both performance and transparency.
On the topic of transparency, Michelle Crozier, Adobe’s Director of Corporate Responsibility said, “Watch this space. Transparency is becoming an increasingly important part of the language of our sustainability discourse and figures prominently in the methodologies used to determine rankings on The Global 100, The Climate A List and other important reports.”
