Valmet included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index among the world's sustainability leaders

Valmet has progressed well with its Sustainability360º agenda emphasizing continuous improvement of even more sustainable business practices. As one indication of the good progress Valmet has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) already for the seventh consecutive year. The company was listed both in the Dow Jones Sustainability World and Europe indices. The total number of companies included this year in the DJSI World for 2020-2021 is 323.

The comprehensive ranking evaluates companies' economic, environmental and social performance.

"Being included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the seventh time is a great recognition for Valmet's progress in sustainability, as continuous improvement is the key criteria for the inclusion. It shows that our people do systematic and successful work for more sustainable practices through the whole organization. I want to thank all Valmeteers participating in this work around the world," says Pasi Laine, President and CEO of Valmet.

Valmet's sustainability agenda focuses on five core areas: sustainable supply chain; health, safety and environment; people and performance; sustainable solutions, and corporate citizenship.

In 2020, Valmet has also received other sustainability acknowledgements. In January, Valmet achieved the best A rating in CDP's climate program ranking. In February, Valmet was awarded the Bronze Class Sustainability Award in S&P Global SAM's annual Sustainability Yearbook 2020, and in April, Valmet was reconfirmed as a constituent of the Ethibel Sustainability Index (ESI) Excellence Europe.
