DiversityInc, the preeminent source of human capital diversity, equity and inclusion data and insights, has released its 2023 Top Companies for Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) list. This annual evaluation recognizes U.S. employers for their excellence in promoting workplace fairness through talent strategy, supplier diversity practices and philanthropic engagement.
The top company on this year’s list is Hilton, followed by U.S. Bank, Mastercard, and Walmart. The entire Top Companies for Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) list and other specialty lists can be viewed at https://www.fair360.com/top-50-list/2023/ or by following the conversation at #DITop50.
The list results are derived exclusively from survey submissions from employers with at least 750 employees in the United States. Companies are evaluated within the context of their own industries on verified policies, practices, and procedures.

“Since 2001, the DiversityInc Top 50 survey has become the external validator for large U.S. employers committed to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion,” said Carolynn Johnson, CEO of DiversityInc. “These rankings represent evidence-based, superior human capital outcomes that are achieved only by data transparency and an unwavering commitment to workplace fairness for everyone.”
DiversityInc’s Specialty Lists assess companies on a metrics-driven evaluation without a preconceived set number of companies on each list. They are evaluated on group performance, and the cutoff takes place where there is a significant difference between the top companies and the next runner-up.
The lists were unveiled May 2, 2023 at an event held at Cipriani Wall Street that featured remarks from executives at Medtronic, Toyota North America, The Cigna Group, Mastercard, KPMG, The Hershey Company, Sysco Corporation, Johnson & Johnson, Eli Lilly & Company and more. Roy Wood Jr. served as the emcee and Deon Cole was featured as the afterparty entertainment.
