Informa achieves top global ranking in Media Sector in leading ESG Index
For the second year in a row Informa has been ranked number one in the global media and entertainment sector of the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI).
This is the fifth time Informa has been included in the DJSI, which measures the performance of the world’s leading companies against environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria. With a score of 79 out of 100, Informa achieved its highest ever rating, a result of continued work across the Group to embed ESG into all aspects of the business.
Stephen Carter, Group Chief Executive, Informa PLC comments: “ESG is a critical focus for Informa so it is great to see our efforts recognised in the DJSI. Through FasterForward, we have a clear plan to further increase the positive impact we have on all our communities, stakeholders and the environment.”
Introduced in 2020, FasterForward is a five-year plan which sets out ambitious commitments across a wide range of activities, covering Informa's business operations, its brands and products as well as broader community impact.
The DJSI ranking follows a number of recent ESG awards and rankings that acknowledge Informa’s progress, including achieving an A- score from globally recognised standard CDP for action on environmental initiatives and ranking seventh in EcoAct’s review of FTSE 100 climate reporting and performance. Informa is also a constituent of the FTSE4Good Index Series, which measures the performance of companies demonstrating specific ESG practices.
