With its expansion of renewable energy usage, LEED-certified building construction, and a significant reduction in carbon emissions, combined with its continued focuses on social responsibility, Duke Energy, Lowes, and Bank of America were all just named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for North America.
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, human capital development and corporate citizenship.
The index is compiled annually by S&P Dow Jones and S&P Global.
