Last Thursday S&P Dow Jones Indices and RobecoSAM announced the results of the annual Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI). Once again, we are pleased to announce that Liberty Global has been included in the DJSI World and North America Indices.
Launched in 1999, the DJSI World Index represents the gold standard for corporate sustainability. Only the top-ranked companies within each industry are selected for inclusion in the DJSI Indices. These indices serve as benchmarks for investors who integrate sustainability considerations into their portfolios and provide an effective engagement platform for companies who want to adopt sustainable best practices.
Benchmark ourselves amongst our industry and find our strength points
Through our participating in DJSI, we are able to better understand our own strengths and areas of improvement, as well as our performance against our peers. This is valuable information that helps us focus our Corporate Responsibility (CR) strategy and become a more sustainable company.
Our yearly submission to DJSI is no easy task – it involves significant internal stakeholder engagement. This process helps us raise awareness and increase internal engagement on our CR strategy and performance.
That being said, we couldn’t have delivered on this achievement without the support of hundreds of people from across our business. This recognition from DJSI is a great example of how we are working together to leverage the power of technology as a force for good.
