Employees across Gap Inc. do more than sell clothes, and FORTUNE Magazine has taken notice.

FORTUNE named Gap Inc. as the 4th highest ranked specialty retailer in their annual round-up of the “World’s Most Admired Companies,” featured in their March 17 issue.

Of the nine attributes used to gauge our reputation, Gap Inc. secured the highest rankings possible in both innovation and global competitiveness, with social responsibility next in line. Collectively, the rankings moved Gap Inc. up one position from the previous year. 

We’re honored to receive recognition for the work we’ve done to bring cool omni-channel innovation to our customers with programs like Reserve-in-Store, which rolled out to Gap and Banana Republic in 2013, and our efforts to be the world’s favorite for American style. (Hello Shanghai!) 

And that spirit of innovation extends to our social responsibility programs too, including our efforts to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by another 20 percent, based on our 2008 levels, by 2015. 

At the core, all of us at Gap Inc. strive to do the right thing whether it’s serving more than 14 million visitors to our stores around the world, or working behind the scenes to create, innovate and leave a positive mark on our communities.
