In recognition of the company’s efforts with customers, employees, and investors, Newsweek magazine has named California Water Service Group (Group) to its 2023 list of “America’s Most Trustworthy Companies.” The honor was given to Group by Newsweek and Statista Inc., a leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider, based on feedback and analysis regarding trust among the three stakeholder groups.

Group ranked second among water utilities nationwide. The list spans 23 industries and recognizes the top 700 out of 3,100 of the largest public and private companies by revenue. The rankings were determined based on market definition—companies headquartered in the United States with annual revenue over $500 million, an independent survey of residents that yielded 95,000 evaluations, and a social listening analysis of more than 270,000 company mentions.

“At California Water Service Group, we are dedicated to doing the right thing for our customers, communities, employees, and stockholders, and operating ethically in every facet of our business; in fact, one of our principal core values is integrity,” said Martin A. Kropelnicki, Group President & CEO. “We are honored that this commitment has been recognized by those we serve and led Newsweek to consider us one of America’s Most Trustworthy Companies.”
