American Axle & Manufacturing (AAM) announced it was recognized by Newsweek as one of America’s Most Responsible Companies for 2023. Announced late last year, the award is presented by Newsweek and statistics portal and industry ranking provider, Statista, Inc. This is the third year in a row that AAM has achieved this status.
“For three consecutive years AAM has been named by Newsweek as one of America’s Most Responsible Companies,” said David C. Dauch, AAM chairman and chief executive officer. “And, each year, we have moved up significantly in the rankings. That is due to our commitment to POWERing a more sustainable future – one that is safer, greener and more inclusive for everyone.”
Companies making America’s Most Responsible list were selected based on two primary sets of data, according to AAM. First was information gleaned from public sources such as a company’s annual report and sustainability report. The second was an independent survey that asked U.S. citizens about their perception of a company’s activities related to corporate social responsibility.
The final list recognizes the top 500 most responsible companies in the U.S., spanning 14 industries.
In compiling the list, researchers focused on a holistic view of corporate responsibility that included three pillars: Environment, Social and Corporate Governance. More than 30 key performance indicators were considered for the ranking, including:
• Waste, Emissions, Energy, Water, Engagement
• Leadership Diversity, Employees, Philanthropy & Engagement
• Disclosure & Transparency, Economic Performance
