points on their culture of ethics; environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices; ethics and

compliance program; diversity, equity, & inclusion; and initiatives that support a strong value chain. That data undergoes further qualitative analysis by our panel of experts who spend thousands of hours vetting and evaluating each year’s group of applicants.
