For the ninth consecutive year Electrolux has been named Industry Leader in the Household Durables category in the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World), the manufacturer has announced.
In this annual assessment, published by RobecoSAM, Electrolux demonstrated ‘notably big improvements’ in the areas of product stewardship, corporate citizenship and human/labor rights.
Electrolux head of sustainability affairs Henrik Sundström commented: “The expectations on sustainability from our consumers, customers, shareholders and employees continue to increase, which is also reflected in tougher criteria in this assessment. Retaining the DJSI industry leadership is important confirmation that we continue to be on the right track in our efforts to integrate sustainability into all aspects of our activities.
“We are also very proud that Electrolux was ranked so highly for its work within Code of Conduct and that we increased the total number of sustainability areas where we are industry leader.”
DJSI World includes the 10% best-in-class economic, environmental and social performers among the world’s 2,500 largest companies.
