Newsweek’s List of America’s Most Responsible Companies Ranks Newmont as Top Miner

Newmont has been ranked as the top mining company in Newsweek’s first-ever list of America’s Most Responsible Companies.

More than 2,000 public companies were evaluated 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, and the independent survey asked 6,500 US citizens about their perception of companies’ activities related to corporate social responsibility.

Of the 300 businesses selected for inclusion in the 2020 index, Newmont placed 39th overall with a score of 79.6 out of 100.

Details on the full methodology are available here. Newsweek partnered with global data research firm Statista Inc. to produce and publish the ranking.

“Robust financial performance and effective risk management require strong, transparent governance and the integration of sustainability into all aspects of our business,” said Tom Palmer, President and Chief Executive Officer. “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.”
