Electrolux has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) for the fourth year in a row. The index is intended to recognize the 10% best economic, environmental, and social performers among the world’s 2500 largest companies.
"I am proud Electrolux is ranked among the world’s sustainability leaders yet again," says Hans Stråberg, Electrolux President and CEO. ”Electrolux has in recent years been acknowledged and praised by many objective sources for our business performance and sustainability efforts. This confirms that we are on the right track and doing what is right for shareholders and consumers. We’ve worked hard to reach where we are today – but we’re not stopping at that.”
Electrolux's sustainability efforts includes four prioritized components:
• A principled business: "Respect and diversity,” ”ethics and integrity,” and “safety and sustainability” defined as principles of conduct for all employees.
• Climate challenge: By continuing to develop climate-smart products, raise consumer awareness, and increasing its own energy efficiency, Electrolux strives to reduce the carbon footprint of its products and business operations.
• Responsible sourcing: Electrolux extends its standards of conduct throughout the supply chain.
• Restructuring: Electrolux applies an open and transparent approach to decisions that affect stakeholders during restructuring.
The Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes were launched in 1999 to track the financial performance of the leading sustainability-driven companies worldwide. Based on the cooperation of Dow Jones Indexes and Sustainable Asset Management (SAM), an independent asset management company headquartered in Zurich, the indexes provide asset managers with reliable and objective benchmarks to manage sustainability portfolios.
