For the second year in a row, John Deere has been named an honoree of The Civic 50, which recognizes the 50 most community-minded companies in the nation each year according to an annual survey.

The award is administered by Points of Light, the world's largest nonprofit dedicated to accelerating people-powered change. Now in its 11th year, The Civic 50 is a national standard for corporate citizenship and showcases how leading companies are moving social impact, civic engagement and community to the core of their business.

The Civic 50 honorees are companies with annual U.S. revenues of at least $1 billion and are selected based on four dimensions of their corporate citizenship and social impact programs: investment of resources and volunteerism, integration across business functions, institutionalization through policies and systems and impact measurement.

"Points of Light and its Civic 50 initiative are inspirational and aspirational," said Nate Clark, John Deere's global director of corporate responsibility and president of the John Deere Foundation. "Through Points of Light, we learn how some of the world's most respected businesses fuel their success by committing to purpose and service. At the same time, we gain an understanding of how much more we can accomplish if we work together for common good."

In 2022, John Deere announced community investments totaling $55.5 million, a 30 percent increase over the prior year. This involved notable investments in its pursuit of ending hunger including over $3 million to food banks and for emergency hunger assistance, representing the equivalent of more than 13 million meals, and nearly $5 million to serve 3.8 million farmers globally to increase their food security, incomes and resilience to conflict and climate change.

Last year, Deere employees logged 174,518 hours of volunteerism and personally donated $5 million.

"Companies play a critical role in creating thriving, participatory communities," said Diane Quest, interim president and CEO, Points of Light. "Companies like John Deere set a model for others, showing how to best use employee talent, business assets and integration to create meaningful impact, and we're thrilled to uplift and celebrate their work as an honoree of The Civic 50 2023."
