Air Products joins Bank of America, Telefonica SA, and others in being named to the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index (DJSI) 2015/2016.
While not improving as some of the companies in its sector for the World Index, Air Products still ranks in the top 20 percent for corporate sustainability performance in North America.
“Our ‘Grow − Conserve – Care’ approach to managing sustainability is rooted in our fundamental belief that good sustainability practices lead to long-term shareholder value and competitive advantage,” said Seifi Ghasemi, Chairman, President, and CEO of Air Products.
“Our inclusion again this year in the DJSI North America Index is an honor, and I want to commend all of this year’s Index constituents for their drive for continuous improvement in sustainability. With our new company structure and focus on becoming the safest and most profitable industrial gas company in the world, we are refining our sustainability program and looking for opportunities to deliver even more value for our stakeholders over time.”
Annually, RobecoSAM invites more than 3,000 publicly traded companies to complete its Corporate Sustainability Assessment, which is used to evaluate their economic, environmental, social, and governance practices. Based on an assessment of general and industry-specific sustainability criteria, companies best managing sustainability opportunities and risks are then selected for inclusion in the DJSI Indices.
