For the 16th year in a row, adidas AG has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), which evaluates the sustainability performance of the largest 2,500 companies listed in the Dow Jones Global Total Stock Market Index. The company was rated industry best in Innovation Management and received high scores in Supply Chain Management, Stakeholder Engagement, Environmental Management System, and Talent Attraction and Retention.

The results of the annual DJSI review were announced today by RobecoSAM, a global investment group focused exclusively on sustainability investing, in collaboration with S&P Dow Jones Indices. 

"It is a great honour that the adidas Group has now been listed in the DJSI for 16 consecutive years. Our sustainability initiatives are an ongoing marathon, not a sprint, and the continuous recognition proves that we have been, and after all these years still are, on the right track to integrate sustainability thinking into our business strategy."

Frank Henke, Vice President Global Social and Environmental Affairs at the adidas Group.

The Dow Jones Sustainability Indices are the longest-running global sustainability benchmarks, a key reference point in sustainability investing for investors and an effective engagement platform for companies which want to adopt sustainable best practices.

The annual review of the DJSI family is based on a thorough analysis of corporate economic, environmental and social performance, assessing issues such as corporate governance, risk management, climate change mitigation, supply chain standards, labour practices, branding and customer relationship management.
