SAP Named Leader of the Software Sector of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes

Originally published September 8, 2009

SAP AG recently announced that for the third consecutive year it has been named as the leader of the software sector of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI), comprising the Dow Jones Sustainability Index World and Dow Jones STOXX Sustainability Index. For the software sector, DJSI reviewed the social, economic and environmental aspects of 34 software companies. Compared with the 2008 rankings, SAP improved in all three aspects and had sector-leading scores in 12 of the 20 key dimensions, including operational eco-efficiency (where it scored 100 percent), brand management, human capital development, corporate citizenship and codes of conduct. SAP also received a 100 percent rating for its environmental reporting, driven by its innovative and interactive online sustainability report.

The DJSI follow a best-in-class approach and include sustainability leaders from each industry on a global and regional level respectively. The annual review of the DJSI family is based on a thorough analysis of corporate economic, environmental and social performance, assessing issues such as corporate governance, risk management, branding, climate change mitigation, supply chain standards and labor practices.
