Company ranks No. 8 of nearly 1,000 in JUST Capital survey of
Drucker Institute recognizes P&G as one of seven companies out of
hundreds with top scores in all five categories of management
CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 10, 2018--
The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG) was recognized today as the
eighth Most JUST Company in America and first among personal care
companies, according to Forbesand JUST Capital, a nonprofit that
ranks the largest publicly traded corporations in the United States on
the issues Americans care about most. The ranking compares America’s
companies head-to-head, based on performance in environmental
sustainability, employee treatment, community support, product impacts
and sourcing responsibly.
The JUST Capital rankings encompass nearly 1,000 of the largest
publicly-traded companies in the U.S. and are based on comprehensive
surveys conducted on public attitudes toward corporate behavior,
involving 9,000 American respondents in 2018 and more than 81,000 over
the past four years. Forbes calls the JUST 100, “a report card
for corporate America, the 100 companies that are setting the standard
in just behavior; if more corporations follow their lead, short term
profits could translate into long term wealth for more Americans.”
“We’re honored to be recognized by Forbes and JUST Capital as one
of the top companies in their America’s Most JUST Company list,” said
David Taylor, Chairman of the Board, President and CEO. “Being a good
corporate citizen is foundational to who we are as a company. We give
back to communities where we live and work, start conversations that
enable inclusion and equality and strive to do the right thing for the
environment. We’re proud to do our part to make a positive difference in
the world and be a force for good and a force for growth.”
“America’s Most JUST Companies consistently outperform their peers in
job creation, wages, work-life balance, environmental impact, and return
on equity,” said Martin Whittaker, CEO of JUST Capital. “Aligning
corporate behavior with the priorities of the American people is good
for communities and good for business.”
This recognition comes on the heels of P&G’s ranking by the Drucker
Institute as one of the Most Effectively Managed Companies in America.
P&G ranked in the top ten among hundreds of Fortune 500, S&P 500 and
other large-cap companies evaluated on overall corporate
effectiveness. The Drucker Institute ranking is determined by five
dimensions of corporate performance—Customer Satisfaction, Employee
Engagement and Development, Innovation, Social Responsibility and
Financial Strength—and P&G was one of only seven companies to score
above the mean in all five categories.
Both rankings follow P&G’s release of its 2018
Citizenship Report, which details
progress of the Company’s Citizenship priorities: Ethics and Corporate
Responsibility, Community Impact, Diversity & Inclusion, Gender Equality
and Environmental Sustainability. Highlights of the report include how
P&G is bringing the comforts of home to those impacted by disasters,
continuing to spark conversations about diversity, inclusion and gender
equality with its advertising, and making a meaningful impact on the
environment with ambitious new 2030 goals including a vision to ensure
that none of the Company’s packaging ends up in the world’s oceans.
