As You Sow and Corporate Knights released today its sixth update of the Carbon Clean 200™, a list of the 200 publicly traded companies that are leading the way among their global peers to a clean energy future.
Key findings include:
Clean200 outperformed the S&P Global 1200 Energy Index with a return of 1.29 percent and lagged behind the broad-market benchmark for the S&P 1200, mostly due to the impact of the simmering trade war between China and the U.S.
If Chinese stocks are excluded from the Clean200, its return since implementation jumps to 20.4 percent.
The top 10 Clean200 companies — based on the amount of absolute revenue they earned from low-carbon products and services for the six-month period ending Dec. 31, 2018 and using updated methodology — are: Alphabet Inc (1st), Siemens AG (2nd), Toyota Motor Corporation (3rd), Cisco Systems (4th), HP (5th), Taiwan Semiconductor (6th), Abb Ltd (7th), Ericsson (8th), Unilever (9th), and Banco Do Brasil S.A. (10th).
