Katie Smith | 27 January 2014

Fashion and sportswear firms H&M and Adidas have made it onto a list of the most sustainable companies in the world.

Adidas Group was ranked eighth on the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World list, unveiled last week at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Companies are scored on a list of 12 quantitative performance indicators, ranging from energy and water usage, to employee compensation and corporate tax strategy.

Over the last ten years, Adidas has improved its placement in the ranking - up from 17 last year and 38 in 2012.

Meanwhile, Swedish clothing retailer H&M came in at 64, up from 73 in 2013.
