PHOENIX, March 6, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Republic Services, Inc. (NYSE: RSG), a leader in the environmental services industry, has been named for a sixth year to Barron's 100 Most Sustainable Companies list. Republic ranks 19th on the 2024 list, which rates companies across 230 environmental, social and governance performance metrics, from workplace diversity to greenhouse gas emissions.

"Our company promise is sustainability in action, which means taking action to improve the health of the environment and our business," said Jon Vander Ark, president and chief executive officer. "We've set long-term sustainability goals designed to deliver both economic and environmental sustainability while meeting the unique needs of our customers."   

The company continues to make progress toward its ambitious 2030 Sustainability Goals tied to safety, talent, climate leadership and communities, while helping its customers meet their own sustainability goals.
