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.
