CR Magazine has named Monsanto to its “100 Best Corporate Citizens” for 2013. This is the fourth time Monsanto has been included on the magazine’s ranking of corporate responsibility performance of major U.S. companies.
“At Monsanto, we are committed to sustainable agriculture and to continuously improve ways in which we contribute. We are pleased that this honor recognizes that commitment,” said Jerry Steiner, executive vice president, sustainability and corporate affairs at Monsanto. “This recognition reflects the thousands of Monsanto employees who are working together with farmers and partners around the world to improve agriculture and improve lives.”
First published in 1999, the “100 Best Corporate Citizens” list ranks large-cap Russell 1000 companies based on publicly available information in seven key categories: climate change, employee relations, environmental, financial, governance, human rights and philanthropy.
