The Clorox Company Named Barron's Most Sustainable U.S. Company for Second Year in a Row

The Clorox Company Named Barron's Most Sustainable U.S. Company for Second Year in a Row

PR Newswire

OAKLAND, Calif., Feb. 22, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- The Clorox Company (NYSE: CLX) has earned the top ranking on Barron's 2024 100 Most Sustainable Companies list — its second consecutive year in the top spot. Clorox was selected for its continued efforts around sustainability, employee experience, inclusive representation and corporate governance structure.

"This important recognition from Barron's is a testament of our values in action," said Chair and CEO Linda Rendle. "By doing the right thing, putting people at the center of everything we do, and playing to win, we can realize our long-term aspirations and drive our business forward in a sustainable manner."

Released today, the list is compiled by Barron's in collaboration with Calvert Research and Management based on environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance by the 1,000 largest U.S. publicly traded companies by market value. Calvert analyzes how companies perform according to five key constituencies—including shareholders, employees, customers, community, and planet— and determines rankings based on more than 230 ESG performance indicators.

Clorox has made considerable progress toward its ambitious ESG goals across the areas where it can have the greatest impact. Recent highlights include:

  • Achieved and continues to maintain pay equity commitment —meaning no statistically significant differences in pay— across gender globally and races/ethnicities in the U.S.
  • Implemented a new ESG governance structure to further integrate ESG priorities, allocate resources and assign decision-making authority and accountability across its business.
  • Sustained diversity in its board of directors, with 50 percent female and 25 percent identifying as people of color.
  • Published its Climate Action Plan outlining its approach to achieving its 2030 science-based targets and 2050 net-zero commitment.
  • Maintained goal to source 100 percent of its electricity from renewable energy for U.S. and Canadian operations.
  • Attained zero-waste-to-landfill status in over half of its facilities and 80 percent of its plants and reached 88 percent of the company's goal to have 100 percent recyclable, reusable or compostable packaging by 2025.
  • Named an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Safer Choice partner of the Year for the sixth time for the company's manufacturing of products that contain ingredients the EPA has determined are safer for human health and the environment.
