A sign of sustainability
The Volvo Group have once again qualified for the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI) for its work with environmental issues.
In this ranking, the world’s 3,000 largest companies are assessed on the basis of their strategies, implementation and results in areas such as business ethics, environmental consideration and social criteria with the focus on their ability to generate long-term value. The Volvo Group is among the top 300 companies included on the list across all industries with a common denominator; they outperform their peers in numerous sustainability metrics.
“I’m both happy and proud that the Volvo Group has qualified yet again for the DJSI. It is an index to us as it explains how we work with CSR and what we do to create value for all our stakeholders. Getting endorsement from such a credible organisation is valuable when liaising with our stakeholders and especially so for our relations with the capital markets,” says Malin Ripa, Senior Vice President, CSR at the Volvo Group.
The Volvo Group has also been acknowledged for its climate strategy – an important part of the Group’s vision for becoming a world leader of sustainable transport solutions. Other highlighted areas are the clear direction and focus for guiding its corporate citizenship programs and the Volvo Group’s dedication to innovation for both products and processes.
