Gothenburg, 15 September 2016: For the 17th year in a row, SKF has been listed as one of the most sustainable companies by the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI).
The Group’s performance within supply chain management and overall environmental management programme once again ranked highly in the survey.
Rob Jenkinson, Director, Corporate Sustainability, says, “Our long-running inclusion in the DJSI is something that we are all very proud of within SKF. Sustainability issues for businesses have evolved during this period, with an ever increasing focus on reducing negative environmental impacts and doing more for society as a whole. We maintain our focus on understanding these issues and the role we can play to help address them – now, and in the future.”
“Doing so is good for society, the environment and makes long term business sense for SKF, our customers and suppliers.”
The Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes were launched in 1999 and are the longest-running and most prestigious global sustainability benchmarks worldwide. In addition, SKF is also a member of the FTSE4Good Index and Ethibel Sustainability Index (ESI) Excellence Europe.
