RS Group qualifies for Dow Jones Sustainability Indices
RS Group has qualified as a constituent of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), which measures the performance of companies selected with environment, social and governance (ESG) criteria using a best-in-class approach.
The DJSI is the longest running global sustainability benchmark worldwide and has become a key reference point for investors and businesses alike. Specifically, RS has been added to the Dow Jones Sustainability Europe Index, which comprises European sustainability leaders as identified by S&P Global through its Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA).
The S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) is an evaluation process for companies looking to establish a sustainability baseline and gain independent insight into their sustainability performance relative to peer companies.
The company’s global ESG score puts it in the 93rd percentile of its industry/peer group.
In addition to being added to the DJSI, RS also announced today it has retained its A- rating for the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), which assesses 15,000 global companies on environmental disclosures.
“Admission to the DJSI, one of the world’s most respected benchmarks for sustainability, is a highly significant milestone for our business in the ESG area and we are immensely proud of it,” said Debbie Lentz (pictured), President ESG Solutions at RS Group. “We are also pleased to have retained our A- CDP rating although our aspiration for the future is an A rating. Our DJSI qualification is yet another important landmark that builds upon our notable ESG achievements and accelerates our journey towards becoming a leader and an example to our industry peers.”
