Electrolux has been included in this year's Dow Jones Sustainability World Index. It is the ninth time Electrolux has been included on the index. Electrolux is the only major household appliances company included in this year's Index.

"Tackling sustainability challenges is a cornerstone in the Electrolux strategy," says Hans Straberg, Electrolux president and CEO. "When we say 'Thinking of you,' it doesn't apply only to products but to the world around us too."

"To raise the profile of our most environmentally sound appliances, each market is now launching a green range of products with low energy consumption," continues Straberg. "But our efforts don't stop at products. We have committed to cutting energy use across all our factories and offices by 15% by 2009."

The Dow Jones Sustainability World Index selects the leading companies in terms of sustainability around the world. The Index is based on long-term economic, environmental and social performance among top 10% of the world's 2500 largest companies. It is based on analysis of corporate economic, environmental, and social performance assessing issues such as corporate governance, risk management, branding, supply chain standards, and labor practices. The Dow Jones Sustainability World Index was launched in 1999 as the world's first equity benchmark to track the financial performance of sustainable leaders on a global scale.
