Legal & General Investment Management, which manages more than £1 trillion of savers’ and pensioners’ money, assesses more than 80 of the world’s largest firms every year.
London-listed oil company Rosneft remained on the list for the second year in a row.
Five companies were added, including oil and gas giant Exxon Mobil, US food firms Hormel Foods and Kroger, Korean Electric Power Corporation and US insurer Metlife.
L&G has vowed to take a stand against the companies which it feels are not doing enough to address climate change, by voting against their chairmen at shareholder meetings.
Meryam Omi, L&G’s head of sustainability, said: ‘Talks without action are no longer fit for purpose given the urgency to address climate change.’
