First, a pool of candidates was created out of the 2,000 largest public companies in the United States by revenue. Banks and insurance companies were measured by total assets of more than $50 billion. Companies with a corporate sustainability or corporate citizen report were screened and analyzed. The analysis included reviewing publicly available performance data in the environmental, social and corporate governance categories. Additionally, a survey of 7,500 people was conducted asking perceptions about companies related to corporate social responsibility. All elements were weighted to produce a final score.
