Arcelik A.S. in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index


In order to leave a more livable world for future generations, Arçelik A.S. has shaped all its business processes on the basis of sustainability and has entered the Dow Jones Emerging Markets Sustainability Index by achieving an important international success with these efforts. Hakan Bulgurlu, CEO of Arçelik A.S., pointed out that international investors meticulously examined the companies’ ‘sustainability’ curves during the decision processes; “We are taking important steps in the field of sustainability, which we place on the backbone of our strategy and business model, with the awareness of our responsibility to the world and of all our stakeholders. We have shown once more our strong position in this area as the only industrial company entered into this year’s Dow Jones Sustainability Index from Turkey while being among the five largest new entrants in the ‘Emerging Markets’ category. Meanwhile, we have entered the FTSE4Good Emerging Markets Index, responsible investment index measured by companies that demonstrate strong environmental, social and governance performance, prepared by FTSE Russell, a member of the London Stock Exchange.”

Leading companies enter the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), one of the most prestigious platforms in the world to assess the sustainability performance of corporate firms worldwide.
