Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy keeps constituent, again this year,  of the Dow Jones Sustainability World Indices (DJSI World), which tracks the economic, social and environmental performance of leading sustainability-driven companies worldwide. This is the eighth occasion the company has been selected for this index and, additionally this year, it was included in the European index (Dow Jones Sustainability Indices Europe, DJSI Europe).

Siemens 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 sixth position -percentile 92- in this category in terms of its overall score.

Moreover, Siemens Gamesa scored particularly well in the areas of Business ethics and codes of conduct, Policy influence, Supply chain management, Product stewardship and Operational Eco-efficiency, together with ESG reporting.

Following this last rebalancing exercise corresponding to 2017, the DJSI World is made up of 320 companies from 29 countries, including 47 additions and 42 deletions with respect to the previous year.

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 2017 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. On the other hand this process offers to companies insights highlighting opportunities and risks deriving from economic, environmental and social trends and developments that may have an impact on their competitive position.

Siemens Gamesa is a member of other benchmark sustainability indices such as FTSE4Good, Ethibel Sustainability Index or Global Challenges Index, among others.
