Not many companies can say they’ve been ranked as one of the world’s most admired companies in 2015, but Fortune Brands can—and has been three other times.

The company ranked No. 2 on FORTUNE Magazine’s 2015 list in the Home Equipment, Furnishings category, improving from No. 3 last year.

“We are honored to receive this recognition as a leader in our industry,” says Chris Klein, CEO. “I’m incredibly proud of the hard work and dedication of our teams who remain focused on building a great company and maximizing shareholder value.”

FORTUNE’s World’s Most Admired Companies list is the definitive report card on corporate reputation. Hay Group, a global management consulting firm, has collaborated with FORTUNE annually since 1997 to identify, select and rank the world’s most admired companies and uncover the business practices that make them highly regarded among their peers. To compile the rankings, corporate reputation and performance are measured against nine key attributes: innovation, people management, use of corporate assets, social responsibility, quality of management, financial soundness, long-term investment value, quality of products/services and global competitiveness.

In its industry, Fortune Brands ranked No. 1 in people management, and No. 2 in use of corporate assets, social responsibility, quality of management, financial soundness, long-term investment value and quality of products/services.
