Campbell Soup recognized for sustainable business practices

FBR Staff Writer Published 18 September 2012

US-based food company Campbell Soup has announced that it has been recognized by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for promoting sustainable business practices.

The company has noted that it has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index for the fourth consecutive year and the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for a third consecutive year.

These independent rankings recognize the company's strategic and management approach to delivering economic, environmental and social performance.

The Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI) track the financial performance of leading sustainability-driven companies worldwide. In selecting the leading performers in each business sector, the DJSI evaluates companies on several topics including corporate governance, environmental policy, climate strategy, human capital development and labor practices.

Campbell Soup public affairs and corporate responsibility vice president Dave Stangis said this recognition is a proof of the meaningful progress the company is making with its corporate social responsibility strategy.

"From nutrition and packaging innovation to environmental sustainability and community programs, Campbell's CSR initiatives are integrated into every aspect of our business and culture," Stangis added.

Campbell said that its CSR strategies are designed to deliver measureable impacts in four key areas- consumers, planet, employees and community.
