Two Davie County Companies Listed on JUST 100 Ranking
Forbes magazine, in partnership with Just Capital, recently released its JUST list of the top-100 U.S. corporations, and two Davie County companies, VF Corp (85) and Ingersoll Rand (97) made the list.
The nation’s 1000 largest publicly traded companies were evaluated on “how they perform on the issues Americans care about most.”
Those issues include worker pay and treatment, customer respect, product quality and environmental impact. Just Capital surveyed 10,000 respondents in 2017 and more than 72,000 over the past three years.
The top 10 are Intel, Texas Instruments, Nvidia, Microsoft, IBM, Accenture, Cisco Systems, Alphabet, Salesforce.com and Symantec.
“Business can and should be a unifying force for good in America today, but what it needs is a new North Star,” said Martin Whittaker, CEO of JUST Capital. “That is what these rankings represent. By trusting in the American people to define what really matters when it comes to measuring business performance, we think we can help breathe life into the vision of a more just economy that better serves the broader best interests of society.”
“The second annual JUST 100 list serves as a report card for corporate America, providing unbiased data about how corporations are performing on the issues Americans care most about,” said Forbes editor Randall Lane. “At a time when corporate America, as a whole, faces low public approval, the companies in the JUST 100 provide an example for their peers on how to win back the trust of the American people.”
