San Donato Milanese (MI), September 16, 2019 – Saipem has been included, for the third consecutive year, in the World and Europe equity indices of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, as a leader in the Energy Equipment Services industrial sector.

For over twenty years, the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, based on a selection carried out by the rating agency RobecoSAM, has classified the companies that stand out in each sector through a complex assessment process that involves analysis of the suitability of the business system and of compliance with stringent economic, ethical, social, environmental and governance criteria.

In addition to highlighting the best practices implemented by Saipem, this year’s evaluation recorded a further and significant improvement in the company’s performance compared to previous years.

Stefano Cao, CEO of Saipem, commented: “Inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability index is an important confirmation of the company’s attention to the integration of sustainable development objectives into its strategies and the validity of its practices aimed at creating value for stakeholders, such as customers, the financial community and areas of presence. Saipem continues its commitment to pursue innovation, the promotion of human and labour rights, and careful management of the supply chain with a view to respecting the environment, health and safety. All these are the elements that characterize the company’s sustainable business model, which is then reported in a transparent manner to its stakeholders”.
