Ecolab Inc., St. Paul, Minnesota, has been named to the 2019 Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) North America Index, a comprehensive assessment of leading sustainability-driven companies. This is Ecolab’s fifth consecutive year on the North America index, and the company’s sixth listing since 2012.
Launched in 1999, the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices was the first global index to track the leading sustainabilitydriven public companies based on an analysis of financially material environmental, social and governance factors. The indices serve as benchmarks for investors who integrate sustainability considerations into their portfolios and provide an engagement platform for companies seeking to adopt sustainable best practices.
The Dow Jones Sustainability Index tracks the performance of the top tier of the 4,500 largest companies in the Dow Jones Global Total Stock Market Index that lead the field in terms of sustainability. These 4,500 companies, across 61 industries, represent the eligible universe for the DJSI (world and regions) and are assessed on an annual basis.
