Cognizant Named Among 100 Best Corporate Citizens of 2018 by Corporate Responsibility Magazine

Cognizant has been named to Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens list for 2018. The list recognizes the standout environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance of public companies across the United States, and is derived from the Russell 1000 index. 

Each year, the 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking measures the success of the Brands Taking Stands movement by celebrating the most successful, most transparent companies that report on their responsible practices. This is the 19th year of the ranking, positioned by CR Magazine as “the only ESG ranking list that doesn’t rely on self-reporting.”

Companies listed on the Russell 1000 are analyzed using publicly available records from their websites, annual reports, shareholder calls, media interviews, NGOs and government documents. The list analyzes 260 ESG data points of disclosure and performance measures — harvested from publicly available information in seven categories: environment, climate change, human rights, employee relations, governance, philanthropy/community support, and finance.
