Corporate Citizenship would like to congratulate its clients Abbott, ConAgra Foods, The McGraw-Hill Companies, Molson Coors Brewing Company, PSEG, and Unilever for being listed on Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI). Unilever retained its leadership position in the Food Producers sector for the 13th consecutive year.
Established in 1999, DJSI was the first global sustainable index which includes only the top performing companies from the Dow Jones Global Total Stock Market Index. DJSI evaluates companies’ financial performance along with their environmental and social performance. Companies listed on DJSI have demonstrated a commitment to corporate responsibility throughout their businesses. To obtain a place on the index, companies are assessed on social, economic, and environmental criteria including corporate governance, risk management, branding, climate change mitigation, supply chain standards and labor practices, and corporate community involvement.
“DJSI is one of the most prestigious, recognized, and respected benchmark of sustainability performance, which also has a strong focus on long-term shareholder value,” said Karin Laljani, Managing Director of Corporate Citizenship. “Achieving a place on DJSI is highly competitive and getting listed is an indication of a company’s commitment and progress in addressing its social and environmental impacts. We congratulate our clients for their efforts and for receiving this tremendous distinction.”
