DowDuPont ranked No. 67 against all industries and was included on this year’s list for outperforming its peers on issues like fair pay and good benefits, customer treatment and privacy, beneficial products, environmental impact, job creation, community support in the U.S. and abroad, as well as ethical leadership and long-term financial growth.
“It is an honor to be included in this year’s list of America’s Most JUST Companies, and recognized as the leader in the chemical industry,” said Howard Ungerleider, CFO, DowDuPont. “From creating high-quality jobs and supporting the communities in which we operate to delivering long-term financial growth, we are grateful for this acknowledgment of our work to meet the needs of all of our stakeholders. As we prepare for the intended separations of our three industry-leading companies – Dow, DuPont and Corteva – these core tenets will remain ingrained in the long-term strategies for each.”
The JUST Capital Rankings, first published in 2016, encompasses the 1,000 largest publicly-traded companies in the U.S., and are based on one of the most comprehensive surveys ever conducted on public attitudes toward corporate behavior, involving 9,000 American respondents in 2018 and more than 81,000 over the past four years.
As one of America's Most JUST Companies, DowDuPont is also included in Goldman Sachs Asset Management’s JUST U.S. Large Cap Equity ETF – the first ever exchange-traded fund based on just business behavior, constructed from JUST Capital’s rankings.
“Trust in our institutions is more important than ever right now. The JUST 100 recognizes companies that are doing right within society,” Forbes Chief Content Officer Randall Lane said. “The Rankings help companies gauge their progress on benchmarks that go far beyond quarterly earnings towards long-term value-creation for all stakeholders.”
