Weinreb Group is pleased to share the updated CSO List attached here. Two years ago, this list was included in ourreport CSO Back Story. This new list shows a 30% increase yet the total number of 35 CSOs is still miniscule next to the 6000+ publicly traded companies in the US. Our methodology focused on publicly traded companies in the U.S. where the senior most executive in charge of sustainability has the title of “Chief Sustainability Officer”. Subsidiaries are not included in this list.
