Congratulations to Beacon supplier Nestlé for achieving the leading food products company in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.
Nestle achieved the accolade for the first time with a score of 88%, this is double the industry average.
The Dow Jones Sustainability Index is based on an analysis of companies’ economic, environmental and social performance, including areas such as corporate governance, climate strategy, supply chain standards and labour practices.
Nestle have also also achieved the maximum score for the second year running in the CDP ‘Climate Disclosure Leadership Index’ and the CDP ‘Climate Performance Leadership Index’. All of which highlight a strong performance against a number of benchmarks that measure the environmental and the social impact of its operations, and the transparency of its information disclosure.
