What is the Dow Jones Sustainability Index?
The DJSI is a global index which tracks the financial performance of leading sustainability-driven companies. It is based on an analysis of financially material economic, environmental and social factors and is reviewed annually by the S&P Dow Jones Index Committee and RobecoSAM, a specialist sustainability investment company. Companies are only listed in the annual ranking if they are best in class within their industry for sustainability.
A perfect foundation for our new sustainability journey
We are listed under the name of our newly merged business, Coca-Cola European Partners, and this gives us a strong foundation from which to build into the future.
