ENGIE’s CSR performance has once again been recognised by the extra-financial rating agency RobecoSAM which has confirmed the Group’s membership of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) World and Europe indices in 2018. The 2018 assessment places the Group as “industry leader” in its sector (Multi and Water Utilities) with a score of 82 out of 100.
“We have once again been recognised by the market as being a leading actor at the international level in terms of CSR. This confirms the relevance of our strategy of bringing together economic performance and the societal and environmental commitments of the company”, Isabelle Kocher, CEO of the Group stated.
Launched in 1999, the DJSI World is the first global index to distinguish the best performing companies with respect to sustainability. Companies included in the DJSI are recommended for sustainable investment by RobecoSAM, whose rating is considered the most renowned1 among experts (including NGOs, public administrations, universities, businesses, media) and as the most credible1, after the CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project).
RobecoSAM analyses a wide range of environmental, social and governance factors. The 3,500 largest global companies are invited every year to take part in the assessment carried out by RobecoSAM.
