NOV 16, 2021 - 6:39 am
BMO Financial Group was ranked among the most sustainable companies on the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), making it one of only five companies in Canada included in the DJSI World Index.
The DJSI is a set of best-in-class benchmarks for investors who recognize that sustainable business practices are critical to generating long-term shareholder value. The DJSI ranks a company’s sustainability performance across three dimensions: governance and economic, environmental and social sustainability. Inclusion on the DJSI World index is reserved for the top 10% of global sustainability performers as ranked by the DJSI.
“Being ranked among the most sustainable companies in the world by the world’s most recognizable sustainability index is a testament to BMO’s purpose to boldly grow the good in business and life through our focus on a thriving economy, a sustainable future and an inclusive society,” Sharon Haward-Laird, general counsel and executive committee sponsor for sustainability for BMO Financial Group, said. “We’re pleased to be included on the world index the same year we announced our ambition to be our clients’ lead partner in their transition to a net-zero future. We are especially proud to be recognized for our strengths in corporate governance, customer relationship management, environmental and social reporting and financial inclusion.”
BMO earned the highest possible scores in the areas of corporate governance, customer relationship management, financial inclusion, environmental reporting and social reporting.
