Alcoa (NYSE:AA) has been named the most admired metals company in the
world for the third consecutive year in Fortune magazine’s
prestigious annual ranking on corporate reputation. Alcoa has been on
the Most
Admired list
since Fortune began the annual ranking 31 years

Alcoa also received top ranking in eight of the nine key attributes:
innovation, people management, use of corporate assets, social
responsibility, quality of management, financial soundness, long term
investment, and quality of products and services.

“It is an honor for Alcoa to be named the most admired metals company
for the third consecutive year,” said Alcoa Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer Klaus Kleinfeld. “This recognition is a tribute to Alcoa’s
60,000 employees around the world who are committed to serving our
customers and communities every day, and to the growing importance of
innovative, lightweight metals to modern society.”

Fortune’s Most Admired list is based on surveys of executives,
directors and analysts who rate companies in their own industry.

The complete list of the World’s Most Admired Companies, and related
stories, will appear in Fortune’s March 17 issue, available on
newsstands next week.
