Clorox Named to 2013 Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World List
The Clorox Company was ranked No. 41 on the 2013 Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World List by Corporate Knights, a Toronto-based media and investment research company. Clorox ranked second among household and personal products companies.
The Global 100, begun in 2005, consists of the 100 top-performing stocks worldwide on a range of sector specific sustainability metrics. This is Clorox's first year to appear on the list.
Starting from a base of 4,000 companies, the Global 100 are screened according to their sustainability disclosure practices, financial health, product types and any recent legal payouts. Remaining companies are then scored on a set of sector-specific key performance indicators (KPIs), including energy, water, waste and carbon productivity; innovation; safety; and diversity. Performance data on each of the 12 KPIs used as selection criteria are found in corporate financial statements, sustainability reports, Bloomberg and other third-party sources, including the Carbon Disclosure Project.
