Winnebago Industries Named Among America’s Most Responsible Companies by Newsweek for Second Year

Winnebago Industries, Inc. has been named one of America’s Most Responsible Companies 2024 by Newsweek for the second year running. This accolade, in partnership with Statista Inc., highlights the company’s ongoing commitment to environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG).

“Our dedication to helping people ‘Be Great, Outdoors’ runs through our company and is integral to how we bring our culture to life and create extraordinary experiences for our customers every day,” said Michael Happe, president and CEO of Winnebago Industries. 

“Winnebago Industries is honored to again be recognized with this celebrated award by Newsweek and Statista Inc. Our corporate responsibility efforts are a critical part of our sustainable business growth and long-term profitability.”

The selection process for Newsweek’s prestigious list involves a comprehensive analysis of over 2,000 public companies, evaluated across 30 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in the realms of ESG, according to a press release.

This is further supported by a survey of more than 17,000 U.S. residents, assessing companies’ CSR performance. Winnebago’s inclusion in the top 600 most responsible companies underscores its significant strides in corporate responsibility.

Winnebago Industries, known for its high-quality motorhomes, travel trailers, and commercial community outreach vehicles, has made notable progress in various sustainability initiatives. 

These include advancing towards the company’s waste reduction goal, achieving a 62 percent diversion from landfills across the enterprise, and initiating a strategic partnership with The Nature Conservancy to promote conservation.

“Winnebago Industries is committed to giving back and supporting the communities where we live, work, and play,” said Stacy Bogart, Winnebago Industries’ general counsel and corporate responsibility lead. 

“We are passionate about protecting and preserving the environment for future generations to enjoy and want the outdoors to continue being a place to find health, happiness, and connection.”

In governance and social responsibility, Winnebago recently issued its 2023 Corporate Responsibility Report. It that the company has increased board gender and racial diversity, with 30% of its board members being women and 20% directors of color in 2023. 

This reflects the company’s commitment to inclusivity and diversity at the highest levels of its corporate structure.

Winnebago Industries’ recognition by Newsweek for the second consecutive year highlights its achievements and sets a standard for others in the industry to follow.
