Barbara Brooks Kimmel: America's most trusted companies ‘beat the street’

Since Trust Across America began our annual reporting in 2013, every “Top Ten” list has outperformed the S&P 500 on a one-year basis. That's true again for 2017, as we reported this week.

In 2010 Trust Across America introduced the FACTS® Framework, a comprehensive unbiased barometer of the corporate integrity of America’s largest 2,000 U.S. public companies.

The Framework identifies companies whose leadership is going beyond doing just what is legal to choosing what is right in meeting all stakeholder needs. Elevating organizational trust improves the long-term wellbeing of all stakeholders, not just shareholders.

The FACTS® Framework is the most comprehensive and data-driven ongoing study on this subject. We analyze companies quarterly and rank order showing trends by company, sector and market capitalization. Read more about the Framework here.
