CEOWorld's assessment process takes a long view of business performance, and is primarily based on the financial returns for the CEO’s entire tenure, which makes up 60% of the final ranking. The company’s track record on environmental, governance, and social issues, as well as market shares, change of market capitalization, and brand’s newsworthiness and impact are factored in for rest of the 40% ranking.
