Mondelez International Named to Dow Jones Sustainability Index for Tenth Consecutive Year

Mondelez International has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the tenth year in a row on the North America index and for the ninth year running on the World index. This honour was bestowed after an integrated assessment of the company’s performance against economic, environmental and social criteria with a strong focus on long-term value creation for shareholders.

Mondelez International achieved scores in the 90th percentile of its industry for its Corporate Governance, Risk & Crisis Management and Environmental Policy/Management System – as well as a perfect 100 score for Water-related Risk. For the 2014 assessment, only companies scoring among the top 10 percent per industry were eligible for the World Index, while companies in the top 20 percent per industry were eligible for the North America index.

“The Dow Jones Sustainability Index is a gold standard for sustainable business,” says Christine McGrath, Vice President, Well-being and External Affairs. “Our business success is directly linked to enhancing the well-being of the people who make and enjoy our products and to supporting the communities where we operate and our ingredients are grown. This belief inspired our Call For Well-being.  Our DJSI World Index listing is great recognition of our colleagues’ hard work – and an equally great incentive for us to continue our strong performance.”

Earlier in September, Mondelez International issued its first report highlighting the company’s progress toward achieving its global well-being goals. It details important steps the company has made to meet key metrics in the areas of mindful snacking, sustainability, communities and safety.
