For the eighth consecutive year, Republic Services has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI). We ranked first in our industry category on the North America Index and second on the World Index, which represent best-in-class sustainability benchmarks for the world’s leading companies.
“At Republic Services, we’re committed to operating sustainably, with initiatives underway to advance circularity and decarbonization, while helping our customers meet their own sustainability goals,” said Jon Vander Ark, president and chief executive officer. “We’re honored to again be recognized by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, both globally and in North America.”
The DJSI Indices measure performance on environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria. The 2023 DJSI World Index represents the top 10% of the largest 2,500 companies globally, and the DJSI North America Index represents the top 20% of the 600 largest North American companies. Inclusion on the indices is recognition of Republic’s ongoing commitment to sustainability and transparency.
