Cummins wins 10th straight spot on Dow Jones North American Sustainability Index
“The Dow Jones Sustainability Indices are comprehensive benchmarks that allow investors to gauge the collective performance of those companies that meet the RobecoSAM standard for corporate sustainability,” David Blitzer, managing director and chairman of the Index Committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices, said.
He added that the North American list includes the top 20 percent of the 600 largest Canadian and U.S. companies based on their sustainable practices. The indices are used by investors who want sustainability to be part of their investment strategy.
The survey is based on “financially material” environmental, social and governance factors.
The Dow Jones World Sustainability Index was the first global index to track leading sustainability driven companies worldwide based on RobecoSAM’s analysis when it was launched 16 years ago. RobecoSAM invited the world’s 3,400 largest companies from developed and emerging markets to participate in the 2015 assessment.
