Electrolux has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) for 2014, and retained its position as ‘industry leader’ in the ‘household durables’ category for the eighth consecutive year. In this annual assessment, published by RobecoSAM, Electrolux was also included in DJSI Europe.

“Sustainability is an integral part of the Electrolux Group’s strategy. We know that consumers consider energy efficiency of appliances an important issue, and are therefore especially proud to have achieved the highest score of the Household Durables category for our efforts in the environmental area,” said Henrik Sundström, head of sustainability affairs at Electrolux. “We are also very glad that Electrolux was ranked so highly for its work with the Code of Conduct, Innovation Management and Supply Chain Management.”

DJSI World includes the 10% best-in-class economic, environmental and social performers among the world’s 2,500 largest companies. Electrolux is the only company in the household durables category to qualify for DJSI World, and has been included in DJSI every year since the index was launched in 1999. The Dow Jones Sustainability Indices enable investors to integrate sustainability considerations into their portfolios while providing an effective engagement platform for encouraging companies to adopt sustainable best practices.
