The announcement of the 2013 Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI World) has seen Auckland Airport feature in the index for the second year in a row.
Seen as the most reputable global index for the socially responsible investor, the DJSI World saw only three NZX50 companies make the 2013 index, with Auckland Airport being the only New Zealand company to feature for the second time.
Judy Nicholl, Auckland Airport’s general manager aeronautical operations, is delighted with the Airport’s inclusion as it confirms the company is not only a leader in the sustainability field within New Zealand but on the global stage as well.
“To appear in the Dow Jones Index for the second year in a row is a fantastic outcome. We are continuously focussed within the business on improving our sustainability performance and our dedication and hard work is reflected in this result,” says Ms Nicholl.
“What is particularly rewarding for Auckland Airport is that the detailed feedback we received from Dow Jones indicates that we are above the global average for our ‘Transportation and Transportation Infrastructure’ sector, across all three environmental, social and governance areas,” continues Ms Nicholl.
Launched in 1999, the DJSI was the first global index to track the financial performance of the leading sustainability-driven companies worldwide. Last year Auckland Airport was the first New Zealand company to make the index.
