CRO Magazine list recognizes excellence in corporate social responsibility


Jones Lang LaSalle, the leading financial and professional services firm specializing in real estate,  was named to Corporate Responsibility Officer Magazine’s 10th annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens List®, recognizing the firm’s achievements in corporate social responsibility. 

CRO’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens List is the only such list based on 100% publicly available information and ranks Russell 1000® companies on their performance in seven key areas: Environment, Climate Change, Human Rights, Philanthropy, Employee Relations, Financial and Governance.

Over the past  nine years, companies on the 100 Best Corporate Citizens List have out-paced the remainder of Russell 1000 companies by an average of 26% in 3-year total returns, according to CRO Magazine.  “In today’s deep recession, human capital and financial capital seek safety—and companies on the 100 Best Corporate Citizens List are today’s safest harbors,” said  CRO Magazine publisher Jay Whitehead. 

“Integrity and ethical behavior are key values at Jones Lang LaSalle,” said Colin Dyer, the firm’s CEO & President. “Superior client service, supportive employment practices, strong corporate governance and responsible corporate citizenship all help to ensure our long-term success.”

First published in 2000 by Business Ethics Magazine, the 100 Best Corporate Citizens List® published by CRO Magazine is the most-recognized Corporate Responsibility ranking of Russell 1000® companies.  The List is based 100% on publicly-available information and is compiled for CRO Magazine by Portland, Maine-based IW Financial, a leading provider of SRI rankings to institutional investors.  MS&L is the official PR firm of the CRO’s 2009 100 Best Corporate Citizens List®.
