“Being recognized by Newsweek for the third year in a row is a tribute to the great work of the Caleres team, who demonstrate their commitment to social responsibility every day across the company. We’re tremendously pleased by this recognition, but we know the work in this area is never done,” said Jay Schmidt, Caleres president and CEO. “Just this year we launched the One Planet Standard. We look forward to continuing to make strides – it is central to our values and culture and in turn, drives our success.”
America’s Most Responsible Companies ranking focuses on a holistic view of corporate responsibility that considers all three pillars of ESG: Environment, Social, and Corporate Governance. The analysis is based on two metrics:
- Key Performance Indicator (KPI) research: The KPI research formed the first part of the detailed analysis. Over 30 KPIs have been researched for the top 2,000 public companies by revenue with headquarters in the USA.
- Public Survey: The survey was the second part of the detailed analysis to evaluate the companies’ Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) reputation. Approximately 17,000 U.S. residents were surveyed. Respondents were asked to select companies familiar to them and then to evaluate the company’s CSR performance in general and in the three subdimensions of social, environmental and governance.
In the final step, an overall score was calculated for each company that had been analyzed. The final list recognizes the top 600 most responsible companies in the United States, spanning 14 industries.
