Herman Miller, Inc., Chosen for 2009 Sustainable Business 20 List
July 07, 2009
Herman Miller is one of 20 global companies that are "changing the world for the better," according to SustainableBusiness.com.
The company is featured for the sixth time in the Sustainable Business 20 list as one of the "World's Top Sustainability Stocks," which includes companies with strong environmental initiatives and solid financial performance. It also is highlighted this year as a Corporate Pioneer because of its continued commitment to innovation for the sustainable design of its products and services during an uncertain economy—an aspect that is increasingly viewed as a sign of management excellence.
The eighth annual list is included in Progressive Investor, a publication of SustainableBusiness.com that tracks and analyzes green stocks.
"Our goal is to create a list that showcases public companies that, even over the past most difficult year, have made substantial progress in either greening their internal operations or growing a business based on an important green technology," says Rona Fried, Ph.D., CEO of SustainableBusiness.com and editor of Progressive Investor.
Six of the world's leading green portfolio analysts select companies that contribute substantially to the advance of a sustainable economy through their products or initiatives.
