Prominent sustainability indices recognize leading global sustainability-driven companies
ST. PAUL, Minn. — Nov. 18, 2021 — Ecolab Inc., the global leader in water, hygiene and infection prevention solutions and services, has again been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability™ World Index (DJSI), published November 12, 2021, which tracks the leading sustainability-driven publicly listed companies globally. Out of more than 11,000 companies invited to participate, Ecolab is one of 322 companies across all sectors and one of 10 companies in the chemical sector named to the World Index. This is the second consecutive year that Ecolab has been recognized on the list. Ecolab also was named to the DJSI North America Index for the seventh year in a row.
“Sustainability has never been more relevant to our world, and it is core to what we do at Ecolab. As our customers put climate change and net zero commitments front and centre, we are helping them conserve resources and focus on growth and responsible business performance,” said Ecolab President and CEO, Christophe Beck. “It is an honour to again be included on the DJSI World Index. This recognition is a testament to the hard work that our associates do every day to advance the health of people and the planet.”
Since its launch in 1999, the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices have benchmarked the world’s largest companies based on economic, environmental and social performance. The DJSI World Index applies a transparent, rules-based constituent selection process based on the companies’ S&P Global ESG Score resulting from the annual S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA). The CSA consists of a rigorous questionnaire assessing both public and non-public data submitted by participating companies. This year, more than 10,000 publicly traded companies were invited to participate in the S&P Global CSA.
"We congratulate Ecolab for being included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index,” said Manjit Jus, global head of ESG Research and Data, S&P Global. “A DJSI distinction is a reflection of being a sustainability leader in your industry.”
