Corporate Responsibility (CR) Magazine ranked Ingersoll Rand (NYSE:IR), a world leader in creating comfortable, sustainable and efficient environments, on the magazine’s 16th annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens list. Ingersoll Rand was named to the list based on the company’s disclosure and performance in seven key areas, including climate change, employee relations, environmental, financial, governance, human rights and philanthropy.

“We are honored to be included on the 100 Best Corporate Citizens list for the second year in a row,” said Marcia Avedon, senior vice president of human resources, communications and corporate affairs. “Ingersoll Rand is in the unique position to lead our industries in introducing energy efficient and sustainable products that reduce energy demand and improve productivity. Our engaged employees are committed to delivering the right products and services that help our customers reach their sustainability goals and further embed our role as a global corporate citizen.”

Companies from the Russell 1000 index are considered for the Top 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking and are evaluated on publicly available data sources of over 298 data elements.

“Companies that make our list make a tremendous effort to learn and disclose how their businesses impact employees, communities, and the environment,” said Bill Hatton, editor in chief of Corporate Responsibility Magazine. “They engage in a wide range of responsible business practices, and they do so while succeeding financially as businesses. They exemplify good corporate citizenship.”
