May 18, 2022 /3BL Media/ - 3BL Media has named AMD as a leader in the semiconductor industry in its annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking, recognizing outstanding environmental, social and governance (ESG) transparency and performance among the 1,000 largest U.S. public companies.
This year, AMD placed #56 in the overall ranking (up from #85 in 2021) and #3 in the semiconductor industry ranking. This award recognizes the company’s continued efforts to address ESG-related issues across its operations, supply chain and products, including progress undertaken over the past year in partnership with employees and suppliers as well as in the areas of human rights and governance.
“AMD is honored to be named for the third consecutive year as one of the 100 Best Corporate Citizens. The concept of responsibly developing and delivering high-performance and adaptive computing to enable a better world is deeply rooted in our culture," said Susan Moore, Corporate Vice President, Corporate Responsibility and International Government Affairs at AMD. "Corporate responsibility is an integral aspect of our business, which aims to generate shared value with our employees, customers, suppliers, investors and communities.”
Since its launch in 1999, the 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking has become increasingly competitive as companies strengthen their ESG disclosures and elevate their performance. Using a methodology developed by 3BL Media, all Russell 1000 Index companies are researched by ISS ESG, the responsible investment research arm of Institutional Shareholder Services. The ranking includes 155 ESG transparency and performance factors in eight pillars: climate change, employee relations, environment, finance, governance, human rights, stakeholders and society, and ESG performance.
“Achieving the transformational targets in the Paris Agreement and UN Sustainable Development Goals in this decade requires all companies to truly embed ESG issues into the core of their business,” said Dave Armon, CEO of 3BL Media. “The 100 Best Corporate Citizens of 2022 are answering the call by demonstrating the societal and bottom-line value of leadership and transparency around ESG topics. They are setting ambitious goals, outlining robust strategies for achieving them, disclosing data to measure progress, and accounting for all stakeholders in business decisions.”
