A newly published ranking of the 100 Best Corporate Citizens highlights firms that take their philanthropic missions seriously. Sitting at the very top of CR Magazine’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens list is the popular toy maker Hasbro. Microsoft, also active in various elements of corporate responsibility, came in third place, just after Intel Corp. in the two-spot. Microsoft was impressive in topping the list in three categories: environment, human rights and philanthropy.
Though it would have been placed fifth on the ranking, Johnson & Johnson was omitted due to several lawsuits and multi-million dollar damage payments surrounding allegations that its talcum powder product causes ovarian cancer. Monsanto Company was left of the ranking – it would have placed 33rd – for allegedly selling a product deemed dangerous. Dow Chemical Co., which would have ranked 47, was omitted following an $835 million settlement agreement to resolve a lawsuit that alleged the company conspired with other companies to fix the price of urethane foam.
