Electrolux tackles sustainability issues profitably

“Making money and running a sustainable business go hand-in-hand,” says Electrolux President and CEO Hans Stråberg. “There is a consumer demand for products that meet high sustainability standards. Consumers are willing to pay more for such products.”

Electrolux has once again been selected for the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability Index together with sustainability leaders from around the world.

“We are very proud to meet the requirements of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, especially since the criteria are getting tougher every year,” says Stråberg. “Being a member of this exclusive index encourages us to continue conducting our business in a sustainable way and making further improvements.”

This is the eighth year Electrolux has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index since the index’s inception in 1999. Electrolux is the only major household appliances company included in this year’s index.

The Dow Jones Sustainability Index is based on long-term economic, environmental and social performance among 10 % of the world’s 2,500 largest companies.
