Basically, who performs the best, in a sustainable vein, when it comes to performance indicators such as energy productivity, employee turnover and leadership diversity.

German car brand BMW topped the list with software company Dassault Systemes in 2nd. Outotec, a Finnish construction company, was third and the Commenwealth Bank of Australia was fourth.

In fashion stakes the sportswear brand Adidas came in at number five scoring 73.1%, last year it was number three. L’Or?al was the top performer in beauty and came 14th overall. H&M placed 20th, with Marks & Spencer clocking in at 21st. The luxury group Kering, which owns Gucci and Saint Laurent, entered the list for the first time, placing 43rd.
