*Fortune notes that NRG Energy is relocating its headquarters to Houston in ’21, but lists NRG’s location as Princeton, NJ.

Note: Schlumberger, which has principal offices in Houston, Paris, London, and The Hague, appears on the Fortune Global 500 list but not on Fortune 500.

 

 

Twenty-four companies on the 2021 Fortune 500 list are headquartered in the Houston metro area, ranking Houston third in the country behind New York (64) and Chicago (35) and ahead of Dallas-Fort Worth (22). 

The biggest movers on the Fortune 500 from ’20 to ’21 are KBR (up to #470 from #501), Crown Castle International (up to #467 from #496), and Waste Management (up to #202 from #207). 

Houston lost two contenders from the list this year. Apache, now known as APA, went from #465 to #595. Calpine (#319 in ’20) was not ranked on the ’21 Fortune list. 

Houston added four companies to its Fortune 500 roster this year: Academy Sports & Outdoors, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, KBR (moved from #501 to #470), and NRG Energy. Academy Sports & Outdoors went public in October ’20 and is new to the Fortune ranking. Hewlett Packard Enterprise and NRG announced relocations to Houston in ’20 and ’21 respectively.
