COMMERCE CITY, CO -- Atlas Copco has been ranked seventh by Newsweek Green Rankings, one of the world's foremost corporate environmental rankings of the 500 largest publicly-traded, global companies by market capitalization. 

NewsweekGreen Rankings uses data from Bloomberg's professional service, which includes sustainability information from over 5,000 public securities and CDP, an international nonprofit that helps companies measure, disclose, manage and share vital environmental information. A total of 809 qualified companies were scored against eight key performance indicators based on the companies' publically available data. Indicators include total energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, water use, waste generation and recycling, reputation and sustainability incentives for senior management.
