Danisco have been selected for inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability indexes for the seventh consecutive year.
The Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) comprises more than 300 companies that represent the top 10% of the leading sustainability companies out of the biggest 2500 companies in the Dow Jones World Index.
The indexes are important because they enable the companies to measure their performance against other global companies. They are not only of value to investors but also other stakeholders. According to Soren Vogelsang, VP, Sustainable Development, some of the major customers are listed on the indexes, and their high ranking has made Sustainable Development more attractive as a first choice supplier.
Companies are selected on their financial, social and environmental performance. Out of the 53 companies listed in the Dow Jones World food and beverage sector only 7 companies are chosen for the sustainability indexes, with Danisco being the only business-to-business supplier.
The evaluation of Danisco's social and environmental performance is published in their new Sustainability Report.
