Voya Financial Ascends to Top 10 on Barron’s 2019 Ranking of the 100 Most Sustainable Companies

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE:VOYA), is ranked 6th on Barron’s
2019 list of the 100
Most Sustainable Companies
, according to an article published in the
Feb. 11 issue of the investment news publication. This ranking marks a
significant jump from Voya’s position in 2018 (No. 46), which was the
inaugural year that Barron’s published the list. Voya was also
the highest-ranking financial services company on Barron’s 2019
list. The rankings are designed to provide information on factors that
affect investment risk and performance, and that are of interest to
investors.

Voya Financial Chairman and CEO Rodney O. Martin, Jr. attributed Voya’s
top-10 ranking to several milestones achieved – and accolades earned –
during 2018 that reflected the company’s commitment to ethical business
practices and diversity and inclusion at all levels of the enterprise.

“We are honored by this distinguished recognition of Voya’s corporate
sustainability performance,” said Martin. “Since becoming an independent
company in 2013, we have driven significant shareholder value by several
measures – while demonstrating our company’s commitment to our values as
reflected in important areas of focus such as ethical business
practices, diversity and inclusion, and serving the disabilities and
special needs community.”

To determine the rankings, Calvert Research and Management, an arm of
Eaton Vance, assesses the 1,000 largest publicly held companies, with
headquarters in the U.S., by market value. Calvert calculates the
rankings by measuring sustainability performance based on 300 indicators
across five categories: shareholders, employees, customers, planet and
community.
