Sempra was placed on Newsweek’s “America’s Most Responsible Companies” list for 2023 for the fourth consecutive year, the energy infrastructure company announced Dec. 12. 

Based in San Diego, Calif., Sempra and its operating companies were recognized for advancing responsible stakeholder engagement through “strong governance policies and disclosures that help promote transparency and accountability,” according to a company release.

"This prestigious recognition is a reflection of our commitment to sustainable business practices that help drive high performance, capture new opportunities and deliver long-term sustainable value for our shareholders and other stakeholders," said Lisa Alexander, senior vice president of corporate affairs and chief sustainability officer for Sempra.

Newsweek’s list of America’s Most Responsible Companies were chosen based on publicly available key performance indicators from corporate responsibility reports, corporate citizen reports and sustainability reports.

Newsweek also uses an independent survey that asked U.S. citizens about their perception of corporate enterprises related to social responsibility.  

The full list acknowledges 500 companies across 14 industries in the U.S. that fulfill Newsweek’s criteria on environmental, social and corporate governance.
