Newmont (NYSE: NEM, TSX: NGT) has been ranked the top mining company in Newsweek’s first-ever list of America’s Most Responsible Companies for 2020. Of the 300 businesses selected for inclusion in Newsweek’s index, Newmont placed 39th overall with a score of 79.6 out of 100.
Newsweek partnered with global data research firm Statista Inc. to publish the ranking. Statista evaluated 2,000 public companies to identify America’s Most Responsible Companies based on publicly available key performance indicators (KPIs) derived from CSR Reports, Sustainability Reports, and Corporate Citizenship Reports as well as an independent survey.
The KPIs focused on company performance in environmental, social, and corporate governance areas. The independent survey also asked 6,500 US Citizens about their perception of companies’ activities related to corporate social responsibility.
“Although we are honored by this recognition, we understand there is always opportunity for improvement, and we will continue driving our sustainability performance to higher levels. In September, Newmont was ranked as the top global gold mining company on the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) for the fifth consecutive year and in January was included in Bloomberg’s Gender Equality Index,” said President and CEO in a media release.
