The results of the annual Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) were announced on November 13, 2020 and showed Ericsson as one of the top-ranked companies within its industry group: technology, hardware and equipment. The DJSI evaluation also showed Ericsson with continued strong performance in the environmental dimension.
Launched in 1999, the DJSI was one of the first global indices to track the largest and leading sustainability-driven, publicly listed companies. The DJSI represents the top 10% of the largest 2,500 companies in the S&P Global Broad Market Index based on long-term economic and ESG factors.
Heather Johnson, Vice President, Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility:

Our sustainability journey continues, and we look forward to continuing strong collaborations with our business partners, customers and of course our fantastic employees, all of which are critical for our success.”
In September 2020, Ericsson was ranked #12 on The Wall Street Journal’s list of the 100 Most Sustainably Managed Companies in the World.
