Reportedly, Walgreen Boots Alliance has been placed to 3BL Media’s annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking, with outstanding ESG transparency (environmental, social, and governance) and strong performance among the 1,000 largest, publicly listed companies in the U.S.
“Being a good corporate citizen is central to our business. By consistently responding to social and environmental needs in an accountable way, we believe we are creating long-term value for our investors, customers, patients, employees and for society at large. We are proud to receive this recognition, which reflects the work of all our teams across the globe as they provide crucial healthcare access and trustworthy health information during the COVID-19 pandemic,” stated Ornella Barra, chief operating officer, international, and chair of the WBA Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Committee.
WBA’s four CSR focus areas include:
- Supporting healthy communities through programs and campaigns to improve access to affordable, reachable quality healthcare.
- Protecting the planet through programs to reduce emissions and waste.
- Consistent efforts to increase the sustainability of its owned brand products.
- Treating its team members with dignity and respect.
Dave Armon, CEO of 3BL Media stated, “Achieving the transformational targets in the Paris Agreement and UN Sustainable Development Goals in this decade requires all companies truly embed ESG issues into the core of their business. The best corporate citizens of 2021 are answering the call by demonstrating the societal and bottom-line value of leadership and transparency around ESG topics. They are setting ambitious goals, outlining robust strategies for achieving them, disclosing data to measure progress, and accounting for all stakeholders in business decisions.”
The company’s annual CSR Report also includes information on its sustainability initiatives and progress on ESG metrics. The 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking is based on 146 ESG transparency and performance factors in eight pillars: climate change, environment, employee relations, governance, finance, human rights, stakeholders and society, and ESG performance. To obtain the ranking, corporate data and information are obtained from publicly available sources only, not from questionnaires or company submissions.
