SCHAUMBURG -- Motorola Solutions said Monday it has been named to the Global 100 list of the world's most sustainable corporations. It's ranked No. 59 on the Global 100 and is one of 10 U.S. companies to earn a spot on the list this year.

In preparing the Global 100 list, media and investment research company Corporate Knights evaluated about 4,000 mid- and large-cap stocks based on publicly available information covering resource, employee and financial management.

"Motorola Solutions is proud of its strong corporate responsibility programs and performance, and being named to the Global 100 confirms the excellent work of our employees across the globe. We are committed to our purpose -- to help people be their best in the moments that matter -- to benefit our customers, our suppliers, our employees, our shareholders and the community at large," said Jodi Shapiro, Motorola Solutions vice president of environment, health and safety. The Global 100 drew companies from 22 countries on six continents.

The Global 100 had revenues of $3 trillion (roughly 4.5 percent of global GDP) and a workforce of nearly 5.3 million in 2011.

The Global 100 uses a two-step methodology based on 2011 data. Companies were screened according to their sustainability disclosure practices, financial health, product types and recent legal payouts.
