The index annually assesses and compares companies on their sustainability work. The index has analyzed the companies on factors such as the extent to which long-term economic, environmental and social aspects have played a role in shaping strategy. Other factors include meeting shareholders’ demands for sound financial returns and transparent financial accounting, and setting the highest standards of corporate governance and stakeholder engagement.
It is the third year in a row that DJSI has selected Atlas Copco for inclusion.
“We are very proud to once again be included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index,” said Mala Chakraborti, Atlas Copco’s Vice President Corporate Responsibility. “It highlights the hard work we do to be highly productive in a sustainable way.”
Earlier this year Atlas Copco was acknowledged as one of the world’s most sustainable companies in the Global 100 list presented at the World Economic Forum, as well as ranked one of the most ethical companies by Ethisphere Institute. Atlas Copco was also named a “Leader” by the FTSE4Good index on environmental, social and governance practices, and was included in business magazine Forbes’s list of the world’s 100 most innovative companies.For further information please contact:
