Stockholm, Sweden, July 4, 2013: Atlas Copco again was selected as a member of the FTSE4Good index, which includes world-leading companies that score well on environmental, social and governance practices, and was named a “Leader.”  

Atlas Copco got a score of 96 out of 100 in global index provider FTSE Group’s evaluation of companies on issues such as fighting corruption and promoting labor and human rights as well as the environment. Atlas Copco was named a “Leader” within the index’s Industrial Goods & Services segment, which includes only five companies globally.
