IBM, Accenture, HP, Dell and Boeing are among the most responsible government contractors by Corporate Responsibility magazine's rankings. The companies were ranked in the second annual 2011 Best Corporate Citizens in Government Contracting List.
The list was created in an effort to encourage government transparency and responsibility data when making buying decisions. About 48 contractors were ranked this year with AT&T, ITT Corporation, Northrop Grumman, Rockwell Collins and General Dynamics rounding out the top 20 Best Corporate Citizens list.
“The Best Corporate Citizens in Government Contracting List highlights companies that know that how they provide products and services to government is just as important as the successes they achieve,“ said Dirk Olin, editor-in-chief.
The ranking of the companies was based on 324 data elements in seven weighted categories which include climate change, employee relations, environment, financial, governance, human rights and philanthropy.
