Nasdaq’s Times Square Tower Honors Avangrid’s Top JUST 100 Ranking

Avangrid ranked top utility and 12 overall on list of America’s best corporate citizens

ORANGE, Conn. — February 21, 2024 — Avangrid, Inc. (NYSE: AGR), a leading sustainable energy company and a member of the Iberdrola Group, was honored today on Nasdaq’s Times Square Tower for the company’s recent leading rank on JUST Capital’s annual JUST 100 list. Avangrid earned the top rank among utilities on the 2024 lists and ranked 12 overall. 

“It is an incredible honor to be highlighted for our recent JUST 100 ranking on the Nasdaq Tower in New York City,” said Pedro Azagra, Avangrid CEO. “Our team prioritizes ethical and just business practices every day—whether we’re working to build the nation’s first large-scale offshore wind project or to deliver safe and reliable power to more than 3.3 million customers across the northeast. This recognition is a testament to the Avangrid team.” 

To receive the number one ranking in the utility industry, Avangrid earned leading scores on key issues, such as human rights, community development, ethical leadership, customer treatment, transparent communication, beneficial products, climate change, workforce advancement, and sustainable materials.

The JUST 100 Rankings are the only measure of how the nation’s largest corporations are performing on the business issues that matter most to Americans. The issues – which include paying a fair, living wage, creating jobs in the U.S., supporting workforce retention and training, providing benefits and work-life balance, protecting customer privacy, minimizing pollution, and more – are defined annually by an extensive nationwide polling process done on a fully representative basis. The top 100 companies – the JUST 100 – are determined by scoring performance across the full range of criteria and comparing companies head-to-head.
