For the seventh consecutive year, Ingersoll Rand has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World and North America Indices. Continued placement on this index series showcases the company’s position as an economic, environmental and social leader among peer companies.
“There’s more to a company’s purpose than generating great financial results,” said Michael W. Lamach, chairman and chief executive officer of Ingersoll Rand. “We have an obligation to anticipate and address pressing global trends that impact the way we live, work and move. That’s why our focus on business, social and environmental sustainability guides both what we do and how we do it. Inclusion on the Dow Jones Sustainability World and North America Indices over the past seven years is an honor, and recognizes the longstanding positive impact our people have on the world.”
The Dow Jones Sustainability Indices launched in 1999 as the first global sustainability benchmarks. The indices are offered cooperatively by RobecoSAM and S&P Dow Jones Indices. The indices serve as benchmarks for investors who integrate sustainability considerations into their portfolios, and provide an effective engagement platform for companies who want to adopt sustainable best practices.
