Newsweek’s Green Rankings looks at the five hundred largest publically traded U.S. based companies. Each company is given a total Green Score, and the Green Score is comprised of three sub scores. What are those sub scores? An Environmental Impact Score (EIS), a Green Policies Score (GPS) and a Reputation Survey Score (RSS). The Environmental Impact Score includes over seven hundred and fifty metrics and accounts for forty-five percent of the total score. The Green Policies Score also accounts for forty-five percent of the total, with ten percent going to the reputation survey (which is a survey of environmental officers, CEOs and academics).
Dell, the Austin computer company ranked as the greenest company of 2010 in the survey.
Not only was Dell number one, but they did it with a perfect 100.00 Green Score.
