For the 14th consecutive time, adidas AG has been selected to join the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), the world's first global sustainability index family tracking the performance of the leading sustainability-driven companies worldwide.

In the “Textiles, Apparel & Luxury Goods Industry”, adidas AG was rated as industry leader in sustainability issues and corporate responsibility for the tenth time.

The results of the annual DJSI review were announced by RobecoSAM, a global investment group focused exclusively on sustainability investing, in collaboration with 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.

“Being listed in the DJSI for more than a decade acknowledges our consistent efforts towards aligning economic success with social and environmental responsibility,” said Frank Henke, Global Director Social & Environmental Affairs of the adidas Group.

he adds, “We are very proud of this recognition, which confirms our successful approach of integrating sustainability into our global business operations.”

The annual review of the DJSI family is based on a thorough analysis of corporate economic, environmental and social performance, assessing issues such as corporate governance, risk management, branding, climate change mitigation, supply chain standards and labour practices.
