We’re pleased to announce that five corporate members of Florida Philanthropic Network have been recognized on Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s 12th annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens List, known as the world’s top corporate responsibility ranking based on publicly available information: The Mosaic Company, Walt Disney Co., JPMorgan Chase & Co., Wells Fargo Co. and CSX Corp.
Mosaic was ranked No. 28 — up from No. 67 in 2011 — in recognition of its conservation and environmental stewardship efforts (No. 6 on the environment rank), as well as its financial and governance transparency (No. 11 on the corporate governance rank). Mosaic also placed high on the human rights (No. 18) and philanthropy (No. 31) rankings.
Walt Disney (Orlando-based Walt Disney World Resort is an FPN member) came in at No. 41 on the list, and ranked particularly high in human rights (No. 8), corporate governance (No. 9) and employee relations (No. 28). Among the other FPN members, JPMorgan Chase was No. 56, followed by Wells Fargo (No. 80) and Jacksonville-based CSX (No. 99). These last three companies were at the top of the list for their corporate governance, and Wells Fargo was No. 8 on the philanthropy ranking.
The “100 Best Corporate Citizens” ranking is based on more than 325 data points in seven categories, including environment, climate change, human rights, philanthropy, employee relations, financial performance and governance. The 100 Best Corporate Citizens List’s open and transparent methodology is governed by a Methodology Committee of the Corporate Responsibility Officers Association.
FPN extends our congratulations to these five corporations, as well as all of our corporate members for their commitment to being good corporate citizens. Like these five companies, all of FPN’s corporate grantmakers are dedicated to FPN’s goal to build philanthropy to build a better Florida, through their cash and in-kind giving, employee volunteerism efforts and many other corporate social responsibility efforts.
