Deutsche Börse recognised again for its achievements in sustainability
Deutsche Börse has been confirmed for the seventh time in a row as a member of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI World and DJSI Europe). The analysts gave particular recognition to the company for its group-wide compliance and risk management, corporate governance and active stakeholder engagement. The Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes are based on an analysis of the economic, environmental and social criteria of the 2,500 largest companies in the world, as measured by free-float market capitalisation. General and industry-specific criteria are evaluated and only companies with a sustainability profile in the top ten percent are admitted to the indices.
In addition, Deutsche Börse has fully met the admission criteria for the FTSE4GOOD Index Series (FTSE4Good Global Index and FTSE4Good Europe Index) since 2009. This index series admits companies which meet strict ethical, social and environmental criteria. Since 2002, the company has also been represented on the EURO STOXX Sustainability Index and STOXX Europe Sustainability Index.
Moreover, the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) has confirmed Deutsche Börse’s renewed inclusion in the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI). The CDLI consists of 30 companies which provide particularly transparent and extensive data on their greenhouse gas emissions and climate strategy. Deutsche Börse is ranked 12th this year. The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) represents 551 institutional investors, which manage a fund volume totaling approximately US$71 trillion.
Reto Francioni, CEO of Deutsche Börse, said: “The fact that we have been able to repeatedly confirm our position in the leading indices demonstrates the continual progress of our group-wide sustainability activities. We see this as a recognition of our achievements leading up to the assessment date.”
