ISS awarded bronze medal in Dow Jones Sustainability Index

ISS awarded bronze medal in Dow Jones Sustainability Index

ISS has once again been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI), and has successfully improved on its company sustainability score from last year.
ISS has once again been included in Dow Jones’ Sustainability Index 2016, as one in only four Danish companies that each year rank on DJSI based on their corporate sustainability assessment. Dow Jones and their collaborative partner, RobecoSAM, develop the index based on the participating companies’ answers to 80-120 industry-specific questions that relate to environmental, economic, and social factors. All values in the assessment scale range from zero to 100, with 100 representing the highest achievement.

In the environmental dimension of the assessment, ISS scored the industry best of 82 on operational eco-efficiency, the world average score for DJSI members was just 60 in the same category. ISS scored consistently higher than the industry average on both environmental and economic factors, which is an improvement from last year’s results.

Joseph Nazareth, Group Vice President, Group Health, Safety & Environment and Corporate Responsibility at ISS, said:

“We are excited that we retain our position in the index, and that we continue to improve our sustainability performance. We employ more than 500,000 people, and it is therefore key for us to continue to improve our sustainability score, not least on the social parameter. Ethical conduct and commitment to our employees, our customers, and the environment are crucial values, and experience shows that high standards of environmental and social performance are accompanied by high financial performance.”

Over the years, the DJSI has gained attention from investors and other professionals interested in how sustainability strengthens financial performance. Initiatives such as the United Nations Global Compact – which ISS is signatory to  support the notion that financial performance and corporate sustainability are interlinked.
