Duke Energy, headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, was recently named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for North America for the 14th consecutive year.
“To be on the North America list for 14 straight years is a clear indication Duke Energy employees are incorporating sustainability into their daily work to benefit our customers and communities,” said Cari Boyce, Duke Energy's senior vice president, stakeholder strategy and sustainability, and president, Duke Energy Foundation.
Since 1999, the DJSI has evaluated the sustainability of leading companies worldwide.
In selecting the top performers in each business sector, the DJSI reviews companies on several general and industry-specific topics related to economic, environmental and social dimensions.
Among the topics are corporate governance, innovation management, environmental policy, climate strategy and corporate citizenship.
The index is compiled annually by S&P Dow Jones and Zurich-based RobecoSAM (Sustainable Asset Management).
Since 2007, Duke Energy has published an annual Sustainability Report that summarizes its efforts to advance energy efficiency, develop renewable energy, reduce emissions and more.
