For the seventh year in a row, the technology group Wärtsilä has been selected as an index component of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), both in DJSI World and DJSI Europe. Wärtsilä performed especially well in the fields of sustainability reporting, innovation management, business ethics, and human capital development. The company was assessed based on its 2021 performance.
“We are proud to be included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices once again. This acknowledges Wärtsilä’s successful focus on sustainable business, but it also encourages us to continue developing our operations further. We are especially pleased to be recognised for our work on Human Capital development, where we saw a significant score improvement. We will continue our systematic work to become carbon neutral in our own operations and support our customers in their decarbonisation journey,” says Marko Vainikka, Vice President, Corporate Relations and Sustainability.
