Every year since 2004, The Sustainability Yearbook has listed the world’s most sustainable companies in each industry as determined by their score in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.
The assessment uses various criteria to rate companies, evaluating them based on their capacity to innovate, attract and cultivate talent, improve efficiency and interact with other industries, and also their transparency in finance, taxation and corporate governance, as well as on their social and environmental impact. These are only some of the criteria that RobecoSAM, the company which assess the annual Dow Jones Sustainability Index, takes into consideration when compiling its Sustainability Yearbook.
Aris Prepoudis, CEO of RobecoSAM enthusiastically stated: “I offer my warmest congratulations to Pirelli for being awarded a Gold Class medal in the 2018 Sustainability Yearbook. The companies included in the Yearbook are the most sustainable in the world and are helping to make the UN Sustainable Development Goals ever more achievable.”
