Alcoa sustains top rank
Alcoa has been named one of the most sustainable corporations in the world again in recognition of its superior performance and strategic ability to manage its environmental, social and economic impact across the board.
This is the second straight year that Alcoa has made the list, which was announced Friday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
Innovest Strategic Value Advisors Inc., an international investment research firm, partnered with Corporate Knights Inc., an independent Canadian-based media company, to publish the list of Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World for the first time in 2005. The list ranks blue-chip companies around the world that have demonstrated the strongest sustainability performance.
The top 100 sustainability performers are chosen from the universe of publicly-traded companies on the MSCI World Index, based on research and analysis by Innovest Strategic Value Advisors. The analysis evaluates which companies have the best ability to manage the environmental, social and governance risks and opportunities they face.
Alcoa is the world’s leading producer and manager of primary aluminum, fabricated aluminum and alumina facilities, and is active in all major aspects of the industry. Alcoa serves the aerospace, automotive, packaging, building and construction, commercial transportation and industrial markets.
