The Dow Jones Sustainability Index, launched in 1999, is an industry standard for corporate sustainability and the first global index to track the leading sustainability-driven companies.
Out of a total of 64 media companies assessed in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DSJI) global universe and 29 in the DJSI Europe universe, only the nine highest scoring companies are included in each index. MTG has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index since 2012 and in the Dow Jones Sustainability Europe Index since 2013.
Jørgen Madsen Lindemann, President and CEO, MTG: “These indices are the global benchmark for sustainability performance. This inclusion demonstrates the work we do every day and our ongoing focus on corporate responsibility as part of our business strategy. It is also another great step towards our ambition of being the most responsible international entertainment company.”
The index includes a detailed assessment of companies’ corporate economic, environmental and social performance, assessing issues such as corporate governance, climate strategy, environmental policy and management systems, risk management, supply chain standards and labour practices.
The new DJSI will be published on the RobecoSAM website (www.sustainability-indices.com) on September 12, 2016, and all changes are effective from September 19, 2016.
