Gamesa has returned to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World), which tracks the economic, social and environmental performance of leading sustainability-driven companies worldwide. This is the seventh occasion the company has been selected for this index. Gamesa is the only Spanish company included within the machinery and electrical equipment category, which comprises a total of 109 companies from all over the world. It ranked ninth in this category in terms of its overall score. Moreover, Gamesa obtained its highest mark ever, having scored particularly well in the areas of business ethics and codes of conduct, emerging market strategy, product responsibility and ESG reporting. Following this last rebalancing exercise, the DJSI World is made up of 316 companies from 28 countries.
Created in 1999, the index selects and tracks the performance of world-leading companies in the sustainability field. Managed by S&P Dow Jones Indices and RobecoSAM, in 2016 the invited universe consisted of the 2,500 largest-cap companies comprising the S&P Global BMI (broad market index); ultimately a little over 10% of the assessed universe with the most sustainable economic, social and environmental policies and initiatives was selected. The index in turn allows investors to invest in superior business models that are likely to remain attractive for the long haul. Gamesa is a member of other benchmark sustainability indices such as FTSE4Good, Ethibel Sustainability Index, Global Challenges Index and Euronext Eurozone 120, among others.
