January 30, 2013 – Corporate Knights recently announced its Global 100 list of the world’s most sustainable corporations, and included in that list are some familiar names: Philips Electronics NV (#7); Schneider Electric SA (#13); Siemens AG (#31); and General Electric Co. (#51). Congratulations!

“The Global 100 are leading a resource productivity revolution, transforming waste into treasure and doing more with less. They are steering our civilization away from ecological overshoot and back to a place of balance with our planet,” said Toby Heaps, Corporate Knights CEO.

The Global 100 consists of the 100 top-performing stocks worldwide on a range of sector-specific sustainability metrics. In aggregate, the Global 100 had revenues of $3 trillion US and a workforce of nearly 5.3 million in 2011.

On carbon, water, energy and waste, the Global 100 are on track to double their resource productivity by 2025 in two-thirds of the cases and, in an era of peak commodity prices, this makes as many dollars as it does sense.”
