The Dow Jones Sustainability World Index comprises more than 300 companies identified as the top 10 percent of the leading sustainability performers among the largest 2,500 companies in the Dow Jones Global Total Stock Market Index. Companies on the North America Index represent the top 20 percent of the highest performers.
“Being recognized in this rigorous external benchmark further reinforces our commitment to continue to be a sustainability leader.
