Caterpillar and Komatsu named to Dow Jones Sustainability Indices
Post Date: 2014-09-23

Caterpillar Inc. and Komatsu  are among the manufacturers named to the 2014 Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI).  Caterpillar was recognized as a sustainability leader in the Industrial Engineering sector. This marks the 13th year for Caterpillar to be included in the list since DJSI debuted in 1999. Komatsu was selected for the second year in a row.

The annual DJSI process involves a thorough analysis of corporate economic, environmental and social performance factors, assessing issues such as innovation management, supply chain management, climate strategy, product stewardship, labor practices and health and safety. For DJSI selection, companies are analyzed and evaluated along a diverse range of items in the three areas of economic performance, environmental conservation efforts and social activities. In 2014, they surveyed a  total of 2,500 major-scale companies around the world, from which they selected 319 companies.

“Caterpillar has been committed to sustainability for many years because we know we can be profitable while also best serving our customers and our people by promoting the common good,” said Doug Oberhelman, chairman & CEO of Caterpillar.

“I’m proud that in early 2014 we honored our longstanding commitment and recognized sustainability as another core value of the company, clearly stating our responsibility to produce sustainable solutions. Raising sustainability to one of our bedrock values – joining Integrity, Excellence, Teamwork and Commitment – acknowledges both what we have done in the past and will do in the future. As I talk with customers, they consistently tell me that sustainability is one of their major concerns, and that’s why we strive to provide more sustainable solutions for our customers,” Oberhelman added.

Komatsu’s President and CEO Tesuji Ohaski acknowledged the honor as well: “Following up on last year’s selection, we are very pleased to receive the recognition by this world’s leading corporate social responsibility index developed jointly by S&P Dow Jones Indices of the United States and RobecoSAM, an investment specialist focused exclusively on Sustainability Investing in Switzerland.” (Source: AED News)
