Xylem Inc has been ranked number 10 on Barron’s inaugural 100 Most Sustainable Companies list.

The water technology company was also ranked number 2 on Barron’s Special Report: The Most Sustainable Industrials.

“At Xylem, it’s not just what we do that matters, but how we do it," said Patrick Decker, president and CEO of Xylem Inc. "Sustainable practices are woven into every aspect of our operations and business strategy. They define how we help our customers solve their water and infrastructure challenges, how we run our own operations, and how we treat our colleagues and give back to the communities in which we work and live.”

To determine the rankings, Barron’s partnered with Calvert Research and management, which analyzed the 1000 largest publicly held companies, measured by market capitalization, with headquarters in the United States. Each company was rated on its demonstrated responsibility in five stakeholder categories: shareholders, employees, customers, planet and community.
