Sasol cracks Dow Jones sustainability world index list

Sep '08
Sasol has been listed on the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI). This index comprises the leading 10% of the largest 2,500 global companies in terms of corporate sustainability and provides a platform to encourage corporate progress towards sustainability and long-term business success.

“This is a great achievement for Sasol. It is the first time that we have been listed on this renowned index. Our previous best was to get to the top 15% in the Oil and Gas sector last year."

"Our renewed focus on people, exceptional performance, long-term sustainable growth and safety has been rewarded. We are motivated by the positive impact that this inclusive approach to business can have on all our stakeholders,” says Sasol CE Pat Davies.

Inclusion on the DJSI is the goal of leading international corporations. It results in public acknowledgement of being an industry leader in strategic areas of economic, environmental & social dimensions and recognition by important stakeholders such as legislators, customers and employees. The index is watched closely by market participants around the world.

“We have seen a clear shift in the debate around sustainability issues and their important role for long-term corporate performance. Several large institutional asset owners have moved into sustainability mandates, influential investment consultants have built up teams to support their clients in this field and a growing number of market participants is integrating long-term economic, environmental and social factors into their analysis,” says John Prestbo, Editor and Executive Director, Dow Jones Indexes.

Launched in 1999, the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes are the first global indexes tracking the financial performance of the leading sustainability-driven companies worldwide. Companies are assessed with regard to general as well as industry-specific sustainability criteria based on sustainability trends.

The criteria cover economic, environmental and social issues with a clear focus on long-term shareholder value creation. Examples include criteria on corporate governance, knowledge management, environmental performance and human rights policies. In total, the comprehensive assessment comprises around 50 different criteria in each industry.
