TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Texas Instruments (TI, 德州儀器) was recognized among the world's 100 best corporate citizens today by Corporate Responsibility Magazine, ranking 31st, up from 38th last year on the magazine's 15th annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens List.
TI said that this is the 12th time it has received the honor.
"TI is honored to again be recognized on this prestigious list because it reflects the commitment of our company and our employees to high ethical standards, environmental stewardship and positive social impact," said Trisha Cunningham, TI's chief citizenship officer. "We are proud of the progress we have made in our voluntary disclosures but work closely with our stakeholders to understand their needs as we strive for continuous improvement."
The list recognizes public companies that showed an outstanding performance in seven areas, namely environment, climate change, employee relations, human rights, governance, finance and philanthropy. By reviewing the most influential U.S. public companies drawn from the Russell 1000 Index, the list documents 298 data points of disclosure and performance measures harvested from publicly available information. The methodology is determined by a Ratings and Rankings Committee of the Corporate Responsibility Officers Association, the TI said.
The 100 Best Corporate Citizens List was first published in 1999 by Business Ethics Magazine and has been managed by Corporate Responsibility Magazine since 2007. The report analyzes data on companies collected from public sources, such as websites and sustainability reports.
TI provides a detailed annual report of its citizenship performance at www.ti.com/ccr and recently launched its new citizenship website at www.ti.com/citizenship. The 2013 Citizenship Report is due to be made public next month. The complete 100 Best Corporate Citizens list will be published on www.thecro.com
