The Sustainability Yearbook 2023

Communications Toolkit

We encourage all companies included in The Sustainability Yearbook 2023 to prepare communication materials on their achievement.

To be listed in the Yearbook, companies must score within the top 15% of their industry and must achieve an S&P Global Sustainability Score within 30% of their industry’s top-performing company.

The Sustainability Yearbook 2023 contains several key improvements, most importantly:  
- Updated Yearbook Emblems to factually distinguish top performing companies; and  
- A revised methodology with an exclusion screening process , to align the Yearbook’s methodology further with the approach taken to select companies into S&P Global ESG Indices.

Download our NEW Yearbook Emblems

If your company qualifies for a Yearbook distinction, we encourage you to prepare your communication using the new Sustainability Yearbook Emblem. The use of the Emblem is subject to acceptance of the Yearbook Emblem Guidelines.

Confirm your company’s Yearbook distinction

Starting February 7th, you can check the Yearbook microsite to confirm if your company is a Sustainability Yearbook member, and the level of distinction.
