“We’re honored to once again be named by Newsweek as one of America’s most responsible companies, the only homebuilder to make this distinguished list two years in a row. Our long-standing and robust commitment to sustainability is one of our most essential operating principles, and this recognition underscores our company’s focus on furthering our industry-leading environmental initiatives, dedication to social responsibility and strong corporate governance standards,” said Jeffrey Mezger, KB Home’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The work KB Home does helps support the American dream and also uniquely delivers homes that are designed to benefit our customers and the environment.”
America's Most Responsible Companies were selected from an initial pool of over 2,000 public companies and based on publicly available key performance indicators from annual reports, corporate social responsibility (CSR) reports, sustainability reports and corporate citizenship reports as well as an independent survey of more than 11,000 U.S. residents. The final list recognizes the top 500 most responsible companies in the U.S., spanning 14 industries. KB Home received its ranking due in part to its strong commitment to further advance its environmental, social and corporate governance initiatives and standards.
