OAKLAND, Calif., May 26, 2015 /3BL Media/ – The Clorox Company (NYSE:CLX) has been named among the 100 most reputable companies in the U.S., according to the Reputation Institute’s 2015 US RepTrak® 100. The annual survey measures public perceptions of corporate reputations based on seven dimensions: innovation, leadership, governance, citizenship, workplace, performance, and products and services.

“Clorox has a strong foundation of leadership and innovation that has benefited our consumers, customers, shareholders and the communities where we operate throughout our 102-year history, and in recent years we’ve made significant progress through our focus on the integration of financial, environmental, social and governance performance,” said Clorox CEO Benno Dorer. “This recognition is important validation of our business approach that focuses on accelerating profitable growth the right way and communicating that message effectively with our stakeholders.”

The ranking follows other positive external recognitions in 2015. For the fifth year in a row, Clorox was named among Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens List. In February, the company received two Climate Leadership Awards for Excellence in Greenhouse Gas Management from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. And in late April, Clorox was presented with the Green to Gold Award by Duquesne University’s School of Business Administration for excellence across social, environmental and economic performance indicators.

“Companies with strong reputations are 15 times more likely to attract better talent, and they reap significant financial benefits, too,” said Brad Hecht, chief research officer at Reputation Institute. “The most reputable companies see a stock performance that is two times better than the overall market, and they benefit from a 6.5 percent increase in recommendations every time they improve their RepTrak® score by five points.”

This is the first year that The Clorox Company has been included in the survey, following a methodology change. Other U.S. companies named in the study include, in order of rank:, Kellogg Company, The LEGO Group, Fruit of the Loom, Campbell Soup Company, Levi Strauss & Co., Snap-on, Hershey Company, Panera Bread, Briggs & Stratton Corp. and UPS.
