Veolia Environnement selected for Dow Jones indexes

Thursday, 01 October, 2009

Veolia Environnement has confirmed its selection in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) and the Dow Jones STOXX Sustainability Index (DJSI STOXX), following the latest annual review of these indexes. Veolia Environnement’s sustainable development performance increased globally by two points in this assessment. Since 2003, Veolia Environnement has been included regularly as a component of these indexes. This selection illustrates recognition of the group’s performance and commitment in the field of sustainable development over the long term.

Every year, the Dow Jones Sustainability indexes analyse the corporate performance of sustainability leaders from each industry on a global level (DJSI World) and regional level (DJSI STOXX). The annual review of the DJSI family is based on a thorough analysis of economic, environmental and social performance, assessing issues such as corporate governance, risk management, climate change mitigation and labour practices.

In 2009, only 317 companies were selected for the DJSI World and 154 companies are a part of the European selection of the DJSI STOXX. Veolia Environnement's selection as part of the British FTSE4Good index has also been confirmed following its latest update in September. Every year since 2004, Veolia Environnement has been included in this index. Being selected so consistently, even as the rating criteria become increasingly stricter, illustrates recognition of the group's performance and long-term commitment to sustainable development.

The British FTSE4Good index is made up of approximately 900 values chosen from the companies listed on FTSE Global Equity indexes. The companies selected meet a number of criteria and recognised international standards in terms of corporate social responsibility and sustainable development.
