Lucky 7! Members of the DJSI for the 7th year with our highest ranking to date
On 7 September, we received our seventh set of Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) results. The DJSI launched in 1999 and is the global gold standard for corporate sustainability. 2017 is our third consecutive year of improving our ranking and we’re the highest placed UK company in our sector.
This success is thanks our people consistently improve what they do to benefit our customers, shareholders, local communities and the environment. We were best in class score for our tax strategy at 100% and did well with scores of 90 plus for customer relationship management, integration of ESG issues into our investment process, our risk and crisis management approach, our environmental reporting, and our charitable giving strategy and reporting.
