Fortune collaborates with partner Korn Ferry Hay Group on this corporate reputation survey, which evaluates approximately 1,500 companies, including the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue and non-U.S. companies in the Fortune Global 500® database with revenues of $10 billion or more. Korn Ferry Hay Group surveys 670 companies from 30 countries to select the largest for each international and U.S. industry. To determine the best-regarded companies in 52 industries, Korn Ferry asks executives, directors, and analysts to rate enterprises in their own industry on nine criteria, from investment value and quality of management and products to social responsibility and ability to attract talent. A company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be listed.

The complete list appears in the February issue of the magazine, available on newsstands Feb. 8. To learn more about Fortune magazine’s list of the “World’s Most Admired Companies,” please visit here.
