Sims Limited Debuts on the FTSE4Good Index Series
July 18, 2023
Created by the global index and data provider FTSE Russell, the FTSE4Good Index Series is designed to measure the performance of companies demonstrating strong Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices. The FTSE4Good indexes are used by a wide variety of market participants to create and assess responsible investment funds and other products.
FTSE Russell evaluations are based on performance in areas such as Corporate Governance, Health & Safety, Anti-Corruption and Climate Change. Businesses included in the FTSE4Good Index Series meet a variety of environmental, social and governance criteria.
“Being included on the FTSE4Good Index Series is a welcome acknowledgement of our ongoing efforts to operate our business in a safe, sustainable, ethical and transparent manner,” said Elise Gautier, group chief risk and sustainability officer. “We continue to advance our goals and ambitions across environmental, social and governance areas in line with our purpose, create a world without waste to preserve our planet.”
Sims Limited’s strategic growth targets are embedded in its sustainability strategy, demonstrating that its business portfolio can deliver growth while enabling a circular, low-carbon future. During the year, Sims Limited has made strong progress on its commitments, including moving to renewable electricity for operating sites in North America, publishing its first tax transparency report, and committing to the 40:40 Vision for gender balanced leadership by 2030.
Inclusion on the FTSE4Good Index Series continues recognition of Sims Limited’s sustainability leadership. The company’s sustainability accomplishments has also been recognized by other leading indices and rankings, such as the DJSI Sustainability Index, CDP Climate leadership, the 2023 Financial Times Climate Leaders APAC list, Newsweek’s Most Responsible Companies in America list, the As You Sow Carbon Clean200 list, and the Corporate Knights Global100 Most Sustainable Companies list.
