2022 Awards

The winners.

BY CATEGORY

In 2022, company rankings were determined through review of annual proxy statements, annual reports on Form 10-K, investor relations websites, and codes of conduct. Each company’s documents were scored using 146 discrete criteria that flesh out the four pillars of transparency. This year, we also analyzed 12 criteria in order to rank the most efficient plain language in the proxy statement. This award is not accounted for in the overall ranking.
