IBD’s 100 Best ESG List Methodology

To determine the 2022 100 Best ESG Companies list, IBD started with a company’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) sustainability score created by Dow Jones Newswires, an IBD affiliate. Next, Dow Jones provided an ESG-scored list to IBD of all the U.S.-traded companies it tracks, a total of 2,208. IBD then cut the list to 1,693 companies by removing non-public companies and companies with stock prices below $10 a share. Companies that lacked sufficient data to create an IBD Composite rating were also removed. IBD further qualified the list by cutting it to the top 15% of the 1,693, using their ESG scores, and then selected the 100 with the highest IBD Composite Rating—all with scores of 81 or better. Finally, IBD ranked the 100 companies by Dow Jones’ ESG score.
