Sandvik once again on lists for Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes
Sandvik AB has 2011/12 been selected to be a member of both DowJones Sustainability World and Europe Indexes.
The Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes were launched in 1999 as the first global sustainability benchmarks. The Indexes track the stock performance of the world's leading companies in terms of economic, environmental and social criteria.
The indexes serve as benchmarks for investors who integrate sustainability considerations into their portfolios, and provide an effective engagement platform for companies who want to adopt sustainable best practices.
- Sustainability is one of Sandvik's top priorities and we work continuously to spread knowledge about our Code of Conduct within the entire organization. I am very proud that our company once again made it on this prestigious list of companies and we will continue to improve our reporting in these areas. (Olof Faxander, President and CEO)
- To have been selected says a lot about who we are as a company. To be on this list means that we conduct our business in a sustainable way and that we are able to collect and to report data about how we implement our economic, environmental and social responsibility in our business. (Bo Berglund, Group Assurance)
