DENVER— Newmont Corp. was ranked 13th overall in 3BL Media’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens list for 2020, moving up seven places from its 2019 ranking.
Newmont, which is headquartered in Greenwood Village, Colorado, is the only mining company to make the top 20 this year, and one of only two mining companies to make the 21st annual list (formerly Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s list).
“Consistently strong environmental, social and governance performance is inextricably linked to delivering superior business results and is a key measure of how well our business is managed overall,” President and CEO Tom Palmer said.
“This recognition is yet another indicator of how deeply sustainability and strong, transparent governance is integrated into our culture,” he said.
