Electrolux once again included in Dow Jones Sustainability World Index

Electrolux has once again been included in the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSWI). The DJSWI includes the 10% best-in-class economic, environmental and social performers of the world’s 2,500 largest companies.

“I am proud Electrolux is ranked among the world’s sustainability leaders for the tenth time. Playing an active role in the climate challenge represents a business opportunity for Electrolux and reflects our commitment to being part of the solution. Our most important contribution towards a more sustainable world is to continue develop and produce energy-efficient appliances,” says Hans Stråberg, Electrolux President and CEO.

According to the DJSWI, Electrolux demonstrates outstanding performance in particular in brand management, environmental management systems, stakeholder engagement and standards for suppliers.

The DJSWI was launched in 1999. It follows a best-in-class approach and includes sustainability leaders from each industry on a global and regional level respectively. The evaluation is based on criteria such as climate change strategies, energy consumption, human resources development, knowledge management, stakeholder relations and corporate governance.
