Republic Services has been named for a sixth year to Barron's 100 Most Sustainable Companies list. Republic ranks 19th on the 2024 list, which rates companies across 230 environmental, social, and governance performance metrics, from workplace diversity to greenhouse gas emissions.

"Our company promise is sustainability in action, which means taking action to improve the health of the environment and our business," said Jon Vander Ark, president and chief executive officer at Republic Services. "We've set long-term sustainability goals designed to deliver both economic and environmental sustainability while meeting the unique needs of our customers." 

Republic Services continues to make progress toward its 2030 Sustainability Goals tied to safety, talent, climate leadership, and communities. Republic Services was the first U.S. environmental services provider with a greenhouse gas reduction goal approved by the Science Based Targets initiative and, last year unveiled its climate transition road map.

To develop its 2024 list, Barron's worked with Calvert to rank the 1,000 largest publicly traded U.S. companies by market value on how each one performed in five key constituencies: shareholders, employees, customers, community, and the planet.
