Fortune unveils top 15 chemical companies; BASF anomaly

Fortune magazine has revealed the results of its survey of most admired companies, including a breakout of top chemical companies. Here is the list:

Company   Industry   Overall score

1  BASF  7.04

2  DuPont  7.03

3  PPG Industries  6.96

4  Bayer  6.87

5  L’Air Liquide  6.36

6  Dow Chemical  6.11

7  Linde  5.97

8  Mitsubishi Chemical  5.63

9  Akzo Nobel  5.54

10  Sumitomo Chemical  5.40

11  SABIC  5.28

12  Sasol  5.19

13  Asahi Kasei  5.10

14  Evonik Industries  5.02

15  ChemChina

Looking at the top 50 listing for all industries, DuPont appears at 49. This seems to be an anomaly as BASF scored higher but is nowhere to be seen.  

Fortune surveyed businesspeople to ask who they most admired. There is an interesting breakdown for best and worst in areas like social responsibility and global responsibility.
