CSA results are used to select companies in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI). The DJSI is a globally renowned independent benchmark that measures company performance across material, economic, environmental and social criteria. Following a best-in-class approach, the DJSI recognizes companies across all industries that outperform their peers in sustainability metrics.

We are pleased to announce that, following S&P Global’s recent review of its 2020 Corporate Sustainability Assessment results in the Professional Services industry, SGS ranks first in the industry. With a score of 85/100, we remain the leader in Environmental and Social, and earned one of the highest industry scores in Governance and Economic criteria.

While we are pleased to be first, we are also encouraged that sustainability is now acknowledged as a key driver for the TIC industry and a priority for society. We will further intensify our efforts to maintain best-in-class sustainability at SGS, starting by launching our 2030 Sustainability Strategy in Q2, as we help to enable a better, safer and more interconnected world for all stakeholders.”
