Entergy makes Dow Jones indexes again
NEW ORLEANS — The Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes has again named Entergy Corporation to its World Index and North America Index for 2010. According to Entergy, it was one of only five U.S. utility companies selected to the world index and one of only 10 utilities selected to the North America index.
Entergy has been recognized by the DJSI North America for nine consecutive years and listed on the DJSI World for five consecutive years – a distinction held by no other U.S. utility company, according to the utility.
“The operational and financial success we’ve achieved over the past decade is directly related to our efforts in sustainable business model that the DJSI recognizes,” said J. Wayne Leonard, Entergy’s chairman and CEO. “As our record illustrates, Entergy employees embrace the moral responsibility to conduct business with a social conscience and in ways that positively impact the environment.”
This year, Entergy performed highest or was ranked among the best in climate strategy, environmental policy/management system, corporate citizenship/philanthropy, corporate governance, occupational health and safety and price and risk management.
First published in 1999, the DJSI World covers the top 10 percent of the biggest 2,500 companies worldwide in terms of economic, environmental and social criteria. Entergy said it was one of only 22 utility companies selected to the DJSI World in 2010. The DJSI North America selects the top 20 percent in terms of sustainability from each industry sector of the 600 biggest North American companies on the Dow Jones Global Total Stock Market Index.
