LANCASTER, PA — Armstrong World Industries, Inc. (NYSE: AWI) announced it has been named one of America’s Most Responsible Companies for 2023 by Newsweek magazine. AWI was ranked No. 76 out of 500 companies and No. 4 in the capital goods category which included more than 40 companies.
“This prestigious award recognizes the progress we have made over the last several years to deepen our commitment to sustainability and make a positive difference in the spaces where we live, work, learn, heal, and play,” said Vic Grizzle, chief executive officer and president of Armstrong World Industries. “For more than 160 years, we have built a strong, resilient company on a foundation of high ethical standards and good stewardship of our resources. I am proud of the work our teams are doing to create healthy and circular products, keep the planet healthy, and enable thriving people and communities.”
This ranking is developed annually by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider, and recognizes the top 500 most responsible companies in the United States, spanning 14 industries. Over 2,000 companies were evaluated using publicly available information from corporate social responsibility and sustainability reports, as well as an independent survey. Performance indicators focused on environmental, social, and corporate governance areas, while the independent survey asked U.S. citizens about their perception of company activities related to corporate social responsibility.
The Newsweek listing comes on the heels of recognition from Corporate Register, which named Armstrong’s 2021 sustainability report, “Healthy Spaces” Best First-Time Report among 74 global organizations.
