Sweden has the world's most "responsibly competitive" companies, according to a State of Responsible Competitiveness 2007 report released on Friday.
The report, issued by the London-based think thank AccountAbility, graded countries based on corporate responsibility issues like environment, climate change, anti-corruption and human rights.
Nordic countries reached the top four positions, with Denmark, Finland and Iceland following No. 1 Sweden. Those were followed by Great Britain, Norway, New Zealand, Ireland, Australia and Canada. The U.S. was lower on the list but managed to make the top 20.
