French luxury goods holding company and world leader in apparel and accessories, Kering, has been recognised as an industry topper in the 2015 Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) World and Europe, heading up the Textiles, Apparel and Luxury Goods sector for the second consecutive year, it said on its website.

Improving its overall performance from Kering's 2014 results, the Group achieved Industry Best scores across several categories within the set of 19 assessment criteria, including Supply Chain Management; Stakeholder Engagement; Environmental Reporting and Social Reporting.

The Kering Group, which is led by François-Henri Pinault, received full marks for its approach to Product Stewardship; Codes of Conduct & Compliance; and Corporate Citizenship & Philanthropy.

“Kering is honoured to maintain our leadership position in our sector in the DJSI. This top ranking reflects the tangible benefits of our pioneering Environmental Profit and Loss Account (E P&L) roll out and our overall strategy to implement a sustainable business model in our own operations and across our supply chain,” said Marie-Claire Daveu, Chief Sustainability Officer and Head of institutional affairs at Kering.

The DJSI World & Europe tracks the best-in-class sustainability performers among the 2,500 largest companies in the Dow Jones Global Total Stock Market Index. Applicant companies are rated against an industry-specific questionnaire which covers economic, environmental and social dimensions. Compiled by RobecoSAM, only the top 10 per cent of leading performers in terms of sustainability assessed against these predefined criteria are listed in the DJSI. (SH)
