Texas Instruments put out a press release that the company has been recognized among the world's 100 best corporate citizens.
TI was ranked 33rd on Corporate Responsibility Magazine's annual "100 Best Corporate Citizens" list.
The list is based on more than 360 data points of publicly-available information and ranks the large-cap Russell 1000 companies on their performance in seven categories: environment, climate change, human rights, philanthropy, employee relations, financial performance and governance.
Among other hi-tech companies in the list is HP (1), Intel (2), and IBM (4).
The complete 100 Best Corporate Citizens list is here.
No matter what the subjective criteria for picking the companies, here ought to be more hi-tech companies on lists like this one. TI is on the right path.
STMicroelectronics has aspired to be a corporate citizen for awhile.
