It is the fifth consecutive year that RobecoSAM recognizes Electrolux in the yearbook as Industry Leader, a distinction awarded to the top performing company in each of 59 industries. RobecoSAM, which also publishes the globally prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), said in the yearbook it had measured companies based on their sustainability performance in three dimensions: economic, environmental and social.

“Sustainability is an integral part of the Electrolux business strategy and through an extensive engagement program over the past year, we have defined clear priorities to ensure we continue to perform well while making a real difference in people’s lives and for our planet,” said Henrik Sundström, Vice President Sustainability at Electrolux. “Our biggest priority is efficiency – continuing to cut down the energy and water our products use, extracting fewer resources, minimizing hazardous substances and shrinking the impact of our operational footprint.”RobecoSAM-Sustainability-Award-Gold-Class-2016
