Atlas Copco Leads Industrial Sector In Newsweek’s Sustainability Ranking

July 23, 2015
Atlas Copco was ranked 11th in the world and highest in the industrial sector by Newsweek Green Rankings.

Atlas Copco was ranked 11th in the world and highest in the industrial sector by Newsweek Green Rankings of the 500 largest publicly traded, global companies by market capitalization.

Newsweek Green Rankings uses data from Bloomberg’s Professional Service, which includes sustainability information from over 5,000 public securities and CDP, an international nonprofit that helps companies measure, disclose, manage and share vital environmental information. Qualified companies are scored against eight key performance indicators based on the companies’ publically available data. Indicators include total energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, water use, waste generation and recycling, green revenue and sustainability incentives for senior management.

“We are proud to be listed in Newsweek’s Green Rankings among global companies who are also committed to sustainable business practices,” says Jim Levitt, president of Atlas Copco North America. “This ranking is validation that it is possible to be an environmental steward while operating a profitable manufacturing company. This is made possible by our global leaders who have embraced and incorporated sustainability into everyday business practices across the organization.”

Earlier this year, Atlas Copco was recognized by the United Nations for its climate initiatives, including its goals to decrease carbon emissions, during the agency’s major conference on climate change. Atlas Copco was also listed as one of the world’s most sustainable companies in the annual Global 100 index.
