The Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes are the world's leading indexes for assessing the economic and financial performance of leading companies in sustainable development. Integration into this index is seen as a benchmark by stakeholders. The SKF Group has once again been praised for the excellence of its supply chain management, the transparency of its tax strategy and the effectiveness of its overall environmental management program.
Rob Jenkinson, Sustainability Manager, said: "We have been working for a long time to integrate sustainable development into our business and we are delighted to receive this recognition again from DJSI. Our products and solutions are helping to transform the world through more sustainable management of our energy consumption and carbon emissions. Our energy consumption has decreased by 16% since 2006."
As part of its global sustainable development strategy, beyondZero, the SKF Group also received this year's ISO 50001 global certification, announced in February. 38 production sites, representing no less than 90% of the group's direct energy consumption, have implemented the SKF energy management system, thus contributing to the reduction of energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions throughout the entire value chain.
Launched in 1999, the Dow Jones Sustainability Index is the world's oldest benchmark for sustainable development.
