Designation is based on comprehensive survey of public attitudes by more than 72,000.
NORWALK, Conn., Dec. 12, 2017 – In a head to head comparison of the largest publicly traded corporations nationwide, Xerox (NYSE: XRX) was recognized for outperforming its peers in a number of areas including worker pay and treatment, job creation, community involvement and providing products that improve life and do not harm the environment. Xerox was named one of America’s most JUST companies according to a survey conducted by Forbes and JUST Capital, a nonprofit that ranks the largest publicly traded corporations in the U.S.
The JUST 100 rankings are based on one of the most comprehensive surveys ever conducted on public attitudes towards corporate behavior, involving 10,000 American respondents in 2017 and more than 72,000 over the past three years. The criteria for the list is based upon JUST Capital’s research into the issues that Americans care about most.

“We believe that the best companies are those that balance the needs of all stakeholders and add value to the communities in which they operate,” said Xerox CEO Jeff Jacobson. “We put a critical focus on ensuring that the hard work of Xerox people helps our customers and the well-being of the planet.”
The JUST Capital rankings encompass the 1,000 largest publicly traded companies in the U.S. The survey ranks how companies perform overall, how they compare by industry, and how they rank on specific themes such as worker compensation and well-being, customer treatment, product impacts, environmental footprint, supporting communities, generating jobs, behaving responsibly in sourcing and supply chains, and more. The JUST 100 list of the top 100 companies across all industries, as well as the 33 top performers by industry, will be featured in the December 26, 2017 issue of Forbes magazine, with additional feature stories at www.forbes.com/just100.
“Business can and should be a unifying force for good in America today, but what it needs is a new North Star” said Martin Whittaker, CEO of JUST Capital. “That is what these rankings represent. By trusting in the American people to define what really matters when it comes to measuring business performance, we think we can help breathe life into the vision of a more just economy that better serves the broader best interests of society.”
“The second annual JUST 100 list serves as a report card for corporate America, providing unbiased data about how corporations are performing on the issues Americans care most about,” said Forbes editor Randall Lane. “At a time when corporate America, as a whole, faces low public approval, the companies in the JUST 100 provide an example for their peers on how to win back the trust of the American people.”
