The Forbes JUST 100 acknowledges U.S. corporations that outperform on an annual corporate survey conducted by JUST Capital, an environmental, social and governance (ESG) rating and ranking firm. The evaluations are designed to reflect the corporate responsibility issues that matter most to the American public, based on polling.
The issues include paying a fair wage, upholding human rights across the supply chain, investing in worker training, acting ethically and with integrity, cultivating a diverse and inclusive workplace, protecting worker health and safety, providing good benefits and work-life balance. MPC’s survey performance reflects the company’s enhanced disclosures published in its 2019 Sustainability Report.
The annual rankings are based on evaluations of the 1,000 largest public U.S. companies drawn from the Russell 1000 Index, which represents over 90% of the U.S. stock market value.
