Hennes & Mauritz enters Dow Jones Sustainability Index

Sep '12
Hennes & Mauritz AB (H&M) has been included to the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability Index World in 2012. The index lists the most sustainable companies per sector based on an extensive annual assessment conducted by the independent asset managers at SAM. The inclusion comes after H&M had been awarded as "sector mover 2012" in SAM´s Sustainability Yearbook 2012, meaning that H&M was the single company with the highest increase in performance scores in our sector.

- This is of course great news and an acknowledgement of H&M's efforts within sustainability, says Helena Helmersson, Head of Sustainability at H&M.
 
The Dow Jones Sustainability World Index was launched in 1999 as the first global sustainability benchmark. The DJSI family is offered cooperatively by SAM Indexes and S&P Dow Jones Indices. 
 
The family tracks the stock performance of the world's leading companies in terms of economic, environmental and social criteria. The indexes 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.
