Ranking companies on the issues Americans care about.

Communities

Americans believe that companies should support the communities they impact, both at home and abroad. Through addressing the negative social impacts from supply chains (such as labor rights abuses and conflict minerals), supporting local suppliers, and giving back through charitable giving and volunteering, companies should foster and protect the communities they impact and the people who live there.
