Last week the Campbell Soup Co. was named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI) for the first time.
Launched in 1999, the DJSI tracks the financial performance of leading sustainability-driven companies worldwide. In selecting the top performers in each business sector, DJSI reviews companies on several general and industry-specific topics related to economic, environmental and social dimensions. These include corporate governance, environmental policy, climate strategy, human capital development and labor practices.
"Campbell is committed to advancing our commitment to sustainability and corporate social responsibility in everything we do. We are very honored that Campbell's sustainability management practices and performance have been recognized by Sustainable Asset Management for inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes," said Douglas R. Conant, Campbell's CEO.
Campbell includes sustainability and corporate social responsibility as one of its seven core business strategies.
