The results for the 2016 Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World index.

The Global 100 process begins each year on October 1, when the starting universe for the index is established. Companies in the starting universe are put through four screens, and the companies that emerge constitute the Global 100 Shortlist. Companies in the Shortlist are then scored on the priority KPIs for their particular GICS Industry. The top overall performers from each GICS Sector are named to the final Global 100, subject to the number of slots reserved for each GICS Sector.

The Global 100 index (which is equally weighted) commenced on February 1, 2005. The Global 100 is calculated by Sol active, the German index provider. It is available on Bloomberg under the ticker and on Reuters under the ticker.
