Mondelez International Named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index For 12th Consecutive Year

Mondelēz International has once again been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for both the North America and World indices. The DJSI is a globally recognized independent benchmark that conducts comprehensive assessments of a company’s economic, environmental and social performance with a strong focus on long-term value creation for shareholders.

Mondelēz International improved its overall score to reach the 95th percentile of its industry.  The company also achieved perfect scores of 100 in health and nutrition, raw material sourcing and water-related risks.

“The Dow Jones Sustainability Index is a gold standard for sustainable business,” says Christine McGrath, Vice President, Sustainability, Well-being and Public & Government Affairs. “We believe our growth is directly linked to enhancing the well-being of our planet and its people, and we focus on areas where we can have the biggest impact, like well-being snacks, sustainable agriculture and reducing our environmental impact. It’s satisfying to see the progress we are making in these areas recognized in our DJSI assessment.”

For the 2016 assessment, the world’s largest 3,400 companies from developed and emerging markets were invited to take part. 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.

In June, Mondelēz International released its Call For Well-being 2015 Progress Report, which detailed how the company exceeded nearly all of its 2015 environmental footprint goals and set more aggressive 2020 targets to fight the impact of climate change. The report further outlined progress the company has made toward its ambition to be the global leader in well-being snacks.
