AkzoNobel holds top spot on Dow Jones Sustainability Index
The 2017 Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) has been published with AkzoNobel leading the rankings.
For the fifth time in six years, Akzonobel has been ranked first in the chemicals industry group.
Thierry Vanlancker, CEO of AkzoNobel, said: “It’s a great achievement to be leading our industry again. We made a huge effort to improve in areas that needed to be addressed and being ranked first again proves the impact we can have by putting sustainability at the heart of our business strategy.
“The real value and purpose of the DJSI lies in its effectiveness as a benchmark tool to continue to improve our business. So, we’re well aware that just because we are leading the ranking again, we can’t afford to become complacent.”
