(Its subsidiaries include Famous Footwear, Naturalizer, Sam Edelman, Allen Edmonds, Vionic, Vince, Franco Sarto, Dr. Scholl’s Shoes).
“At Caleres, how we do business is as important as how much business we do,” states Jay Schmidt, president. “Our commitment to corporate social responsibility is a central component of our culture and significant driver of our success, so it is humbling to be recognized by Newsweek again this year. While these accolades underscore the progress we’ve made against our long-term goals, we look forward to continuing to make significant strides for many years to come.”
America’s Most Responsible Companies were selected based on publicly available key performance indicators derived from CSR and sustainability reports, as well as an independent survey. The KPIs focused on company performance in the environmental, social and corporate governance areas, while the independent survey asked U.S. citizens about their perception of company activities related to corporate social responsibility.
The final list recognizes the top 500 most responsible companies in the United States, spanning 14 industries. To learn more about Caleres’ sustainability efforts and read its ESG report visit caleres.com. View the entire 2023 list of America’s Most Responsible Companies here.
