Fortune calls its Most Admired list "the definitive report card on corporate reputations."
The magazine worked with the Hay Group, which started with 1,400 companies: the Fortune 1,000 - the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue; non-U.S. companies in Fortune's Global 500 database with revenues of $10 billion or more; and the top foreign companies operating in the U.S.
They sorted the companies by industry and selected the 15 largest for each international industry and the 10 largest for each U.S. industry. A total of 673 companies from 32 countries were surveyed.
To create the 58 industry lists, the Hay Group asked executives, directors, and analysts to rate companies in their industry on nine criteria, from investment value to social responsibility.
This year only the best are listed: A company's score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to make the list.
