Ecolab Inc., St. Paul, Minnesota, has been named to the 2019 Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) North America Index, a comprehensive assessment of leading sustainability-driven companies. 

This is Ecolab’s fifth consecutive year on the North America index, and the company’s sixth listing since 2012.

“Every day, our 49,000 associates work to make the world cleaner, safer and healthier, and to be successful, we must operate sustainably,” says Ecolab chairman and CEO Douglas M. Baker, Jr. “We are honored to again be recognized on the DJSI North America Index for our commitment to operating responsibly.”

Launched in 1999, the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices was the first global index to track the leading sustainability-driven public companies based on an analysis of financially material environmental, social and governance factors. The indices serve as benchmarks for investors who integrate sustainability considerations into their portfolios and provide an engagement platform for companies seeking to adopt sustainable best practices.

Ecolab has earned other sustainability honors in the past. For example, the company received the Gold Medal for International Corporate Achievement in Sustainable Development in 2018.
