In January 2015, SGS was named RobecoSAM’s Industry Leader and Industry Mover, in the category of Professional Services, and received a Gold Class Sustainability Award, based on its 2014 performance on the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) World and Europe.

The Industry Leader Award goes to the company with the highest score on the DJSI for each industry, and the Gold Class Award is given to companies with scores that are within one percent of this. The Industry Mover is the company within the top 15% of its industry that has achieved the largest proportional improvement compared with the previous year.

“These awards demonstrate recognition of the energy and effort that SGS puts into corporate sustainability. We are very proud of this achievement,” says Daniel Rüfenacht, SGS Vice President of Corporate Sustainability.

RobecoSAM is a specialist in sustainability investing. It has compiled one of the largest global databases on corporate sustainability, which is based on its Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA). Almost 2,000 companies in 59 industries were assessed in 2014.
