Terex Corporation has been named to the inaugural list of “Just” companies, as compiled by non-profit organization Just Capital, and published in the December 20, 2016 issue of Forbes magazine.
The rankings were determined by 50,000 Americans over the last 18 months, who were queried about the socially responsible attributes of U.S.-based companies in 32 industries. In addition to making the top 100 list, Terex ranked as the number two “Just” company, among 32 in the Machinery category.
The companies researched were those included in the Russell 1000 index -- a leading U.S. equity benchmark for institutional investors. Just Capital believes that, based on its research and data, consumers, workers, business leaders and investors can make more informed decisions about where to buy, work and invest.
“We are very pleased to be recognized as a ‘Just’ company,” says Terex President and CEO John Garrison. “This is particularly gratifying, given ‘Citizenship’ is one of our six ‘Terex Way’ values. It’s great to know that, in an independent research project based on data from publicly available sources, Terex is viewed as a company that reflects the things that matter most to the public, including pay and benefits, positive worker treatment, leadership and ethics, and community well-being. Delivering value to our customers, team members and shareholders is our reason for being, and our six Terex Way values -- respect, integrity, citizenship, improvement, courage and, servant leadership -- are the foundation upon which Terex is built and operates.”
