JD is ranked on the FORTUNE 2021 World’s Most Admired Companies list at No. 6 in the Internet Services and Retailing Category. The company joins Tencent, Cathay Pacific, Haier Smart Home and Alibaba as one of five Chinese companies included on the list.

Since day one, JD has been committed to doing right by its customers brand partners and employees, and to making a meaningful contribution to society. As the company’s business has grown, it has opened up its capabilities across retail, logistics and technology, empowering partners as well as industry players far beyond the JD ecosystem. When COVID-19 first broke out, the company opened its doors and made all of its resources available to support people and companies all over China, ensuring access to vital medical and food supplies, helping companies to resume work, and more. The company’s mission, “Powered by Technology for a More Productive and Sustainable World” embodies its commitment to use its application of advanced technologies to benefit society.

To compile the list, FORTUNE collaborated with partner Korn Ferry on a survey of corporate reputation, starting with a universe of about 1,500 candidates: the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue of $10 billion or more. From there, the assortment was winnowed to the highest-revenue companies in each industry, a total of 670 in 30 countries. The top-rated companies were picked from that pool; the executives who voted work at the companies in the group.
