AKRON, Ohio — Newsweek magazine has ranked Goodyear as one of America’s “Greenest Big Companies.”
Companies were scored on environmental impact, green policies and overall reputation as an environmentally conscientious company, and ranking were determined by Newsweek and KLD Research & Analytics, Trucost and CorporateRegister.com.
The rankings were published in the Sept. 28 issue.
“The evaluation was based on specific criteria such as greenhouse gas emissions, water usage and ‘green’ programs,” said Don Stanley, Goodyear’s vice president of product quality and plant technology. “We pride ourselves on the progress we’ve made over the years on these and other fronts. However, we also recognize the fact that environmental stewardship requires continuous improvement across a broad spectrum of opportunities, and at Goodyear we are committed to getting better each and every day.” (Tire Review)
