Republic Services Makes Barron's 100 Most Sustainable U.S. Companies List

The company has made Barron’s list for the second consecutive year, this year advancing to No. 80.

Republic Services announced it was recognized on Barron's 100 Most Sustainable U.S. Companies list for the second consecutive year, advancing to No. 80 on the 2019 list. Republic noted it remains the sole recycling and solid waste services provider on the list.

"We are honored to once again be recognized as one of Barron's 100 Most Sustainable Companies," said Don Slager, president and CEO of Republic Services, in a statement. "Every day, our employees demonstrate their commitment to doing the right thing for our customers, our team and our Blue Planet, and this recognition validates their efforts."

Barron's partnered with Calvert Research and Management, which analyzed the 1,000 largest publicly-held U.S. companies by market capitalization to develop the top 100 list. The firm studied more than 300 key performance indicators—including water usage, greenhouse gas emissions, business ethics and environmental impact—that, in turn, fall into the stakeholder categories of shareholders, employees, customers, community and planet.
