Microsoft stood first in the Governance category and also received the top ranking overall.
Being ranked the number one company in the Reputation Institute’s 2012 CSR RepTrak™ 100 report is a tremendous honor and one that we are very proud to receive. Citizenship is a priority on a global scale and at all levels of Microsoft, and over the past few months we’ve announced a number of major initiatives and milestones, said Microsoft.
