Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE: AMD) today announced it has been named to CRO Magazine’s “100 Best Corporate Citizens” list for 2009. AMD secured the #46 ranking.
CRO’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens List is the only 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. AMD’s highest scores came in the areas of environment, climate change and human rights.
This is AMD’s second award this year honoring the company’s efforts in the area of corporate responsibility. In January, AMD was named for the third consecutive year to the 2009 Global 100 Most Sustainable Companies in the World list. The annual Global 100, unveiled each year at the World Economic Forum in Davos, is a list of role models in sustainable business practices.
“At AMD, corporate responsibility is a cornerstone of our company’s culture,” said Allyson Peerman, AMD’s vice president, Public Affairs. “We believe that AMD’s social, environmental and governance programs directly enhance our value to our customers, employees and to the communities where we do business. In fact, there is an increasing body of third-party research that suggests that good corporate citizenship contributes to increased shareholder value.”
