The 2011 Newsweek Green Rankings were published on Oct. 17, and NAEM invites you to get an inside look at how the companies were compared, scored and ranked.
In an act of transparency, experts from Trucost and Jantzi-Sustainalytics, the companies that produced the rankings for Newsweek, will explain how they used a combination of quantitative and qualitative data to assess each of America’s largest 500 companies. Although some people will understandably disagree with the finding of any ranking, the list does provide a useful measurement of where companies currently stand on their green initiatives and where they are headed.
Whether your company is included in the top 100, aspires to make the list, or is just looking to benchmark with industry leaders, this event will help you understand the factors that go into green rankings.
You'll gain new insight that includes:
- Who's eligible to be included in the rankings
- The methodology behind the three categories that comprise the overall score
- How to use the rankings to benchmark your own company
- How to be proactive about your green ranking
Plus, get the facts behind some common misconceptions of the Newsweek Green Rankings.
