The nine Canadian constituents of the 2010 Global 100 list have seen their stock prices rise by a cumulative 57% over the past five years.

Corporate Knights, the magazine for clean capitalism, has been publishing the Global 100 since 2005.

The 2010 Global 100 tapped intelligence from the world's largest sustainability research alliance put together by Legg Mason's Global Currents Investment Management to isolate the top ten per cent companies from a universe of 3000 global stocks, which were then transparently ranked based on 10 indicators, with data sourced from ASSET4, a Thomson Reuters business, and The BLOOMBERG PROFESSIONAL® service.


Please note: media will have to present credentials to security.
