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.
