Steelcase Makes Newsweek’s List of “Most Responsible Companies”
Office furniture supplier Steelcase (NYSE:SCS) has received national recognition as one of the “Most Responsible Companies” in the U.S. by Newsweek Magazine for positive efforts in environmental stewardship, social impact and corporate governance, placing 85th overall and 13th in the Consumer Goods category.
“We’re delighted to be recognized for the work we’ve done and continue to do in these areas,” said Jim Keane, president and CEO of Steelcase. “Environmental, social and governance issues reflect our passion for people and commitment to doing what’s right.”
Working with Statista Inc., a global business data group, Newsweek spearheaded a four-phase process which began by identifying 2,000 prominent companies, headquartered in the United States, to create their initial candidate pool. They then scored candidates’ corporate social responsibility as indicated by publicly available documents, key performance indicators and conducted an independent survey of 6,500 U.S. citizens to finalize their list of 300 winners.
