Respecting the Environment: 2016 Newsweek Green Rankings
Nordstrom came in at #35 out of the 500 U.S. companies in the 2016 edition of Newsweek's annual Green Rankings, which rates large global companies on their sustainability performance and environmental impact. This is our highest spot ever and a significant leap from last year's #95. Also, among the 83 'Consumer Discretionary' sector companies included, we jumped to #5 from #9 in 2015.
Thanks to all of the Nordstrom employees and customers who help us uphold our commitment to respecting the environment. Your support of things like recycling, composting, and using less energy, water, paper and packaging is the reason we continue to make great progress.
