Electrolux once again included in Dow Jones Sustainability World Index
Electrolux has once again been included in the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSWI). The DJSWI includes the 10% best-in-class economic, environmental and social performers of the world’s 2,500 largest companies.
According to the DJSWI, Electrolux demonstrates outstanding performance in particular in brand management, environmental management systems, stakeholder engagement and standards for suppliers. "I am proud Electrolux is ranked among the world’s sustainability leaders for the tenth time," says Hans Stråberg, Electrolux President and CEO. ”Playing an active role in the climate challenge represents a business opportunity for Electrolux and reflects our commitment to being part of the solution. Our most important contribution towards a more sustainable world is to continue to develop and produce energy-efficient appliances.” The DJSWI was launched in 1999. It follows a best-in-class approach and includes sustainability leaders from each industry on a global and regional level, respectively. The evaluation is based on criteria such as climate change strategies, energy consumption, human resources development, knowledge management, stakeholder relations and corporate governance.
