At the World Economic Forum (WEF), the “Global Sustainable Management Companies List” was also released this year. Canadian Investment Research and Media Group Corporate Knights selects the top 100 global companies to rank for carbon and waste reduction, gender and diversity of leaders, profits from clean products, and the company’s overall sustainability. The No. 1 company this year is Chr. Hansen Holding A/S, which uses natural bacteria to protect crops and develops and uses natural solutions for animal protection. Second place is Kering SA, a French company that owns brands such as fashion brands Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, and Alexander McQueen. The company confidently says that 60% of its board of directors is made up of women and has no glass ceilings. Third place is Neste Corporation, which took second place last year, a Finnish refinery whose 20% of sales are derived from eco-friendly products. Neste’s Clean Air Productivity, which measures air emissions, was excellent, and Neste’s sales over the next five years are expected to come from renewable fuels and biomaterials.
