Campbell Soup named as one of the world’s most sustainable companies

Campbell Soup Company has been included in Corporate Knights’ index of the top 100 most sustainable corporations in the world.

Corporate Knights – a media, research and financial products company – analysed 7,395 companies with more than $1 billion in revenues to create its list. The companies were then ranked by reference to resource, employee and financial management, along with clean revenue.

In 93rd place on the list, Campbell is one of only two US food companies included in the Global 100. The company received high marks in the index’s clean revenue metric, which accounts for 50 per cent of each company’s score and measures the percentage of revenues earned from products or services that have environmental or well-defined social benefits.

According to Corporate Knights, Campbell scored well because of the variety of organic and non-GMO project verified products in its portfolio, in addition to plant-based milk offerings. Meanwhile, Campbell also scored in the top quartile for innovation capacity due to the company’s investment in real food innovation.

“Campbell is honoured to once again be recognised by Corporate Knights as one of the world’s most sustainable corporations,” said Roma McCaig, Campbell’s vice president of corporate responsibility and sustainability. “This recognition is a testament to our employees who bring our purpose to life every day by driving Campbell’s corporate responsibility and sustainability programmes.”
