Ak­zoNo­bel

has re­turned to the top of the in­flu­en­tial Dow Jones Sus­tain­abil­ity In­dex (DJSI) to lead the rank­ings again for the fifth time in six years.

The lat­est list­ing places the com­pany first in the Chem­i­cals in­dus­try group. “It’s a great achieve­ment to be lead­ing our in­dus­try again. We made a huge ef­fort to im­prove in ar­eas that needed to be ad­dressed and be­ing ranked first again proves the im­pact we can have by putting sus­tain­abil­ity at the heart of our busi­ness strat­egy,” said

Ak­zoNo­bel CEO, Thierry Van­lancker.

“The real value and pur­pose of the

DJSI lies in its ef­fec­tive­ness as a bench­mark tool to con­tinue to im­prove our

busi­ness,” added Van­lancker. “So we’re well aware that just be­cause we are lead­ing the rank­ing again, we can’t af­ford to be­come com­pla­cent. As a leader in sus­tain­abil­ity, we are play­ing a ma­jor role in trans­form­ing the in­dus­tries in which we op­er­ate. We there­fore need to keep im­prov­ing in order to make the gi­ant leaps re­quired for us to cre­ate a more sus­tain­able future.”
