According to the 2017 report, published by Corporate Knights magazine, companies are evaluated using an intense screening process and those that emerge constitute the shortlist. Corporations making the shortlist are then scored on the key performance indicators for their industry. The top overall performers from each sector are named to the Global 100, subject to the number of slots reserved for each sector.
