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. A total of 809 qualified companies were 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, reputation and sustainability incentives for senior management.

“We are extremely proud to be recognized by an organization like Newsweek for our commitment to sustainable productivity,” said Jim Levitt, president of Atlas Copco North America. “This top 10 ranking is a reflection on our employees and their dedication to our sustainability initiatives surrounding safety, health and environmental issues.”
