We’ve been recognized on Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable U.S. Companies list for the third time, advancing to #68 on the 2021 list. This recognition comes after a year of unprecedented challenges, in which we launched the Committed to Serve initiative to support our employees and small businesses across the country.
“Republic Services is constantly striving to deliver bold sustainability programs and durable practices that make a meaningful positive impact on the environment, our employees and society while enhancing our business,” said CEO Don Slager. “Our employees are proud to provide an essential service, and their heroic efforts throughout 2020 kept our communities safe while furthering our efforts to protect our planet for future generations.”
Barron’s partnered with Calvert Research and Management, who analyzed the 1,000 largest publicly held U.S. companies by market capitalization to develop the top 100 list. The companies ranked on Barron's 2021 list received high scores for their efforts to mitigate their impact on the environment and bolster employee welfare, community health and customer satisfaction.
