Atlas Copco was included in the new United Nations Global Compact 100 stock index. The index consists of companies that demonstrate a sustainable business and strong financial performance.
Companies were selected based on their adherence to the UN Global Compact’s principles on the environment and social issues, as well as their profitability. The “GC 100” index showed a total investment return of 26.4 percent during the past 12 months, outperforming the general global stock market, according to the UN Global Compact Office.
“Atlas Copco is committed to its customers around the world and PT Atlas Copco Nusantara embraces that commitment as well. Our customer’s productivity and sustainability is top priority,” said Jess Kindler, director of Atlas Copco Nusantara. “We are pleased that the UN Global Compact 100 index has included Atlas Copco and we will continue to serve our customers to the best of our ability.”
Earlier this month, Atlas Copco was included for the third year in a row in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, which lists the world’s leading sustainability-driven companies.
Previously this year, Atlas Copco was acknowledged as one of the world’s most sustainable companies in the Global 100 list presented at the World Economic Forum in Davos, as well as ranked one of the most ethical companies by Ethisphere Institute.
Atlas Copco was also named a “Leader” by the FTSE4Good index on environmental, social and governance practices, and was included in business magazine Forbes’s list of the world’s 100 most innovative companies.
