SGS Achieves a Decade of Sustainability Excellence, Featuring Again at the top of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index

December 18, 2023

SGS has been included again in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices World and Europe, with a top score of 83/100 in the S&P Global’s 2023 Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA).

SGS has reaffirmed its position as a leader in sustainability by securing once again a top spot in the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) for both the World and Europe categories. This marks a significant milestone, with the company celebrating a decade of outstanding performance in these indices. In a notable achievement, SGS has scored an impressive 83 out of 100* in the S&P Global's 2023 Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) for the professional services sector. This score significantly surpasses the industry sector average of 26 out of 100, underscoring SGS's commitment to sustainability excellence.

A benchmark for corporate sustainability

The DJSI is a benchmark for corporate sustainability, recognizing companies that excel in long-term economic, environmental, and social practices. The DJS World Index, in particular, showcases the top 10% of the largest 2,500 companies in the S&P Global Broad Market Index. Inclusion in this index is a testament to a company's dedication to sustainable development and responsible business practices.

Frankie Ng, CEO of SGS, expressed immense pride in the company's consistent achievements: "Being featured once again in the DJSI is a reflection of our unwavering commitment to sustainability and responsible business conduct. As a signatory of the UN Global Compact, we are dedicated to promoting the UN Sustainable Development Goals across our entire value chain. This recognition reinforces our position as a leader in integrating sustainable practices into our core business strategy."

Sustainable business practices are integral to long-term success

This recognition not only highlights SGS's role as a sustainability pioneer but also sets a benchmark for other companies in the professional services sector to aspire to. With a decade-long track record of excellence, SGS continues to lead by example, demonstrating that sustainable business practices are integral to long-term corporate success.
