FCC Joins FTSE4Good international sustainability index

  • It also consolidated its position in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index

FCC has been chosen for the FTSE4Good index, which includes companies from around the world with a commitment to corporate social responsibility.

This confirms the strategic value of sustainability policies for FCC, as also recognised by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, which recently included FCC in both its World and European indices for the second consecutive year.

FTSE4Good, which was launched in July 2001, selects listed companies throughout the world which comply with requisites established by the index, all of which are based on the principles of responsible investing: corporate social responsibility in the areas of human rights, anti-corruption, the environment, climate change and stakeholder relations.

FTSE4Good is reviewed semi-annually in September and March in association with EIRIS, the Ethical Investment Research Service, to decide which new companies to include and which to exclude due to non-compliance with sustainability requirements.

The September 2009 review has added 33 companies from around the world, two of them Spanish, and excluded 15.
