DowDuPont was named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI) by S&P Dow Jones Indices and RobecoSAM, the investment specialist focused exclusively on sustainability investing. DowDuPont was recognized as a sustainability leader in the “materials industry” category and assessed based on environmental, social and governance factors.
“It is a tremendous honor to be named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for the second consecutive year since the DowDuPont merger,” said Howard Ungerleider, chief financial officer of DowDuPont. “As we prepare for the intended separations of our three industry-leading companies – Dow, DuPont and Corteva – sustainability will remain a core tenet of the long-term strategies for each. By driving innovations that protect life and the environment, we will continue to create sustainable economic value.”
DowDuPont was also named to the DJSI North America Index. Since launching in 1999, the DJSI has provided benchmarking of the world’s largest companies in terms of their economic, environmental and social performance. More than 3,400 companies are asked to participate in the Corporate Sustainability Assessment.
