branding_institute_blog_post_global_100_most_sustainable_corporations_of_the_worldAs usual at this time of the year the annual ranking of the most sustainable corporations was published in Davos at the World Economic Forum Summit last weekend. We have taken a closer look into the methodology last year. As methodology remains basically unchanged this year there is no need for a new rating. But as access to the methodology is not as convenient as it used to be and there is less free access to former years data we will put a new rating under consideration for next year. And still one shortcoming of the ranking is that it has a predefined number of slots per industry. This would exclude well performing corporations if they are not among the top performers within their industry.

So lets take a look to the results. The ranking shows a new leader, which is biotech giant Biogen – last years #2 in the ranking. Interesting is runner up Allergan as the pharmaceutical corporation wasn’t even among the top 100 last year – and most recently acquired by Actavis in December 2014. Note that #1 and #2 are part of the pharmaceutical & biotech industry! Most of the other companies are the “usual suspects”. Back in the Ranking is Danske Bank after it had been excluded for three years. Being #10 in the ranking Danske jumps to the best sustainability performer in the financial sector according to the Global 100. To see the whole ranking visit
