ATHENS, Jan. 28 /CSRwire/ - Piraeus Bank has qualified for inclusion in RobecoSAM’s 2016 Sustainability Yearbook, following its selection as an index component of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index Emerging Markets.
The Sustainability Yearbook has listed the world’s most sustainable companies in each industry as determined by their score in RobecoSAM’s annual Corporate Sustainability Assessment.
At the 2015 Corporate Sustainability Assessment Piraeus Bank’s score was higher than 72% of the total assessed banks. Piraeus Bank’s inclusion in the 2016 Sustainability Yearbook denotes that it is within the top 15% of the banking industry worldwide and is one of the 37 banks that were finally included in the Yearbook. In addition to the sustainability score, a qualitative evaluation of the Bank’s response to critical sustainability issues that may arise during the year was also applied. For the assessment procedure global sustainability trends are taken into account, while specific corporate strategies and practices are also analysed in terms of corporate governance, climate change, energy consumption, human resources management and stakeholder relations.
RobecoSAM and the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices monitor the financial performance of companies that lead the field in terms of corporate sustainability and guide international investors that seek viable investment opportunities that generate long-term shareholder value.
