The Volvo Group has once again qualified for inclusion on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index of the world’s foremost companies in sustainable development. Volvo is one of the few Swedish companies included on both the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index and the Dow Jones STOXX Sustainability Index.
For the seventh consecutive year, Volvo is included on DJSI World, thanks to the group’s sustainability efforts relating to financial, environmental and social issues. This means that Volvo is deemed to be among the top 10 percent of the world’s best companies in terms of combining financial profitability with concern for the environment and social issues. In total, 2,500 companies were reviewed, and only 320 were considered sufficiently qualified for inclusion on DJSI World.
The Volvo Group received an especially positive rating for the manner in which it manages environmental issues, corporate governance and financial issues.
For the fifth consecutive year, the Volvo Group is also included on DJSI STOXX, an index of the leading European companies in sustainable development. A total of 600 companies were reviewed for inclusion on DJSI STOXX, and 162 qualified for inclusion on the index.
The Volvo Group, headquartered in Göteborg, Sweden, is a leading global manufacturer of trucks, buses and construction equipment, drive systems for marine and industrial applications, aerospace components and services.
