Fortune has published this “definitive report card on corporate reputations” list since 1983. Companies that appear on the list are selected from among 1,500 global companies. Executives, directors, and analysts are asked to rate companies in their own industry based on nine criteria, from investment value and quality of management and products to social responsibility and ability to attract talent. A company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be listed.
