E.ON recognized by Dow Jones Sustainability Index
E.ON is the only German company in the “Multi and Water Utilities” sector to be included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices World and Europe. Only ten percent of the more than 2,500 publicly listed companies receive this honor. In many categories E.ON performed well above average, achieving much higher scores than last year.
For E.ON CEO Johannes Teyssen sustainability is a top management concern: “I am very proud of this result and I would like to thank all the colleagues who have helped make it possible. But we will not rest on our laurels. The realignment of our business and the new focus on renewable energies, energy networks and innovative customer solutions offers great opportunities to become more sustainable. We can make sustainability a more central part of our core business and in this way shape a new, sustainable energy world. We are preparing ourselves for the energy markets of the future and want to continually improve.” ….
