Corporates Ranked on Refugee Integration   

A ranking of the 50 top-performing companies on refugee economic integration has been launched by Refugee Integration Insights (RII). In what it calls a first, RII analysed 1,807 publicly listed companies across six pillars: hiring refugees or investing in refugees, having education and training targeted towards refugees, having services or products aimed at refugees, corporate philanthropy aimed at refugees and advocacy for refugees. The top-performing companies are dominated by European or US-headquartered companies, with 48 of the top 50 based in the two regions. Australia’s ANZ Bank (ranked 6th) and Japan’s Fast Retailing Co (31st) are the only companies outside of these regions to make the rankings. Europe and US’ concentration was partly driven by the corporate response to the Ukranian refugee crisis, said RII. Consumer companies also dominated the list accounting for nearly a third of the top 50 companies, including Unilever which ranked 1st and Starbucks which ranked 5th.
