BLOOMFIELD, Conn., April 29, 2015 - CR Magazine has named Cigna Corporation (NYSE:CI) to its 2015 list of 100 Best Corporate Citizens. This is the first time the company, ranked number 86, has been in the top 100. The recognition reflects progress achieved through Cigna's strategic corporate responsibility platform, Cigna Connects.
In 2014, Cigna issued its first CR Report, prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines. The report provides an up close look at Cigna's environmental, social and governance (ESG) policies and priorities, and demonstrates how Cigna's non-financial performance in these areas aligns with its mission, supports the core business and creates benefits for Cigna's stakeholders.
"Key to Cigna's success is earning trust through responsible business practices and corporate citizenship, and providing superior services that meet our customers' individual needs. Our Cigna Connects vision is to serve as a catalyst for action and as a convener of stakeholders who, working together, can make a difference," said Cigna President and CEO David Cordani.
The magazine annually ranks the nation's top 100 companies for demonstrated CR best practices and a commitment to publicly reporting their socially responsible initiatives. Companies are ranked by CR Magazine on more than 300 data points collected on publicly available information covering climate change, employee relations, environmental, financial, governance, human rights, philanthropy and community support. The list was recognized by PR Week as one of America's three most important business rankings. The full list of the 2015 100 Best Corporate Citizens can be found at http://www.thecro.com/.
Later this year, Cigna will release its second annual CR report presenting the material issues and impacts of Cigna's ESG activities and 2014 accomplishments.
