Valmet included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the fourth consecutive year

HELSINKI -- Valmet has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for the fourth consecutive year and thus maintains its position among the world's sustainability leaders. Valmet was listed both in the Dow Jones Sustainability World and Europe indices.

The annual evaluation conducted by a Swiss investment specialist RobecoSAM comprehensively reviews the companies performance with regard to social, environmental and financial factors. This year in total 320 companies are included in the DJSI World for 2017-2018.

"Being listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability World and Europe Indices for the fourth time in a row is a recognition of Valmet's strong focus and consistent progress in sustainability. This is also an acknowledgement to our 12,000 employees globally, because through their work we are continuously improving our sustainability performance. Sustainability is at the core of our business, and we will continue our systematic work with our sustainability agenda," says Pasi Laine, President and CEO of Valmet.

Valmet defined its sustainability agenda named Sustainability360º initially in early 2014. The agenda focuses on five core areas: sustainable supply chain; health, safety and environment; people and performance; sustainable solutions, and corporate citizenship.

The DJSI is a sustainability index family which includes the global sustainability leaders across industries. The company inclusion is based on a best-in-class approach, which means that the indices only include the top ranked companies within each industry. The index serves as a benchmark for investors who are committed to ethical investing and review companies' sustainability performance as part of their analyses.
