British luxury brand Burberry has been included in the 2015 Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) for the first time the company said in a press release.

The inclusion recognises that Burberry is one of the top performing companies in the 'Consumer Durables & Apparel' sector for Corporate Sustainability in the World.

Now in its 16th year, the industry-specific, best-in-class approach to selection means the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices serve as trusted benchmarks for the investment community, recognising sustainable business practices as indicative of long-term shareholder value.

Burberry Chief Creative and Chief Executive Officer, Christopher Bailey, said: “It is a great honour to be included in the 2015 Dow Jones Sustainability Index. I believe our inclusion reflects the real focus, importance and integrated approach that we place as a culture on managing our business in a responsible and sustainable manner - this recognition means a great deal to all of us at Burberry.”
