MSCI, a firm that classifies companies’ ESG efforts and distributes rankings to investors, updated Belden’s rating to AA in November 2023. According to MSCI, an AA rating is given to companies that lead their industries “in managing the most significant ESG risks and opportunities.”

In addition, Belden is proud to have been selected by Newsweek for the publication’s America’s Most Responsible Companies 2024 list. After the publication scored thousands of companies on their environmental, social and governance efforts, Belden ranked #288 out of the 600 companies receiving this recognition.

“Belden is devoted to advancing environmental, social and governance programs through our values and operations,” said Brian Anderson, Senior Vice President – Legal, General Counsel & Corporate Secretary at Belden, who oversees the company’s ESG initiative. “We are proud of these achievements, and know that together, we will continue to innovate and lessen our impact on the planet, enhance the lives and careers of those we serve, and lead with our responsible and ethical business practices.”
