Caterpillar Named One of Fortune’s World’s Most Admired Companies in 2017

February 16, 2017

We are proud to be named to Fortune’s World’s Most Admired Companies® 2017 list. This year, Caterpillar is ranked number 47. Caterpillar has appeared in the Top 50 All-Stars list for 16 consecutive years.

Fortune also ranked Caterpillar as the number one most admired company in the Construction and Farm Machinery category. Caterpillar has appeared in Fortune’s industry rankings every year since 1998 -- and this is the third year in a row that we've been ranked number one.

To determine the best-regarded companies within each industry, the global management consulting firm Korn Ferry Hay Group asked 3,800 executives, directors and securities analysts to rate companies within their own industry on nine criteria, including innovation, social responsibility and global competitiveness.

To determine the Top 50 All-Stars, Korn Ferry Hay Group asked the respondents to select the 10 companies they admired most. Unlike with the industry rankings, respondents could pick any company in anyindustry while selecting their top 10 companies. We're honored to have been included in many respondents' top 10 lists.
