AkzoNobel reclaims top ranking on Dow Jones Sustainability Index
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.”
