Richard Crespin of the Corporate Responsibility Officers Association (CRO) answers this question and goes on to name names: the top companies on the CRO Black List, or companies for whom zero points of relevant data can be found to rate its corporate citizenship.

Major companies have been pushing their way into the corporate responsibility space for years. And according to Crespin, being good pays. The companies who have made it on their sister list, the 100 Best Corporate Citizens List, have seen a total return on shareholder value of 2.37 percent over three years.
