Atlas Copco remains on Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes

27 Sep 12 Swedish manufacturer Atlas Copco has been selected for inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes in 2012/2013.

The indexes list the world’s leading sustainability-driven companies.

Atlas Copco was included in the Dow Jones Sustainability indexes in 2007/2008 and once again in 2011/2012. Membership is based on an annual assessment and comparison between industry peers. The assessment focuses on management of opportunities and risks deriving from economic, environmental and social developments. Aspects such as corporate governance and strategy are taken into account, as well as key performance indicators such as emissions and waste.

For asset managers focused on investing in sustainable companies, the indexes provide a benchmark to measure the performance of their investments.
