Amsterdam, 3 September 2009 – TNT NV was named today as global ‘Supersector leader’ for ‘Industrial Goods and Services’ (including ‘Industrial transportation’) of the 2009 Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI). Moreover, TNT earned the highest score of all companies included in the DJSI for the third consecutive year. These are the conclusions of a report published in Zurich by SAM, a sustainability investment specialist, which assessed the sustainability performance of over 1,000 listed companies.
TNT was awarded an overall score of 95 out of a possible 100, an improvement over last year’s score of 92. In addition, TNT earned the highest score in two of the indexes dimensions – economic and social – and showed a score improvement in the environmental dimension.
In addition, TNT achieved the highest scores in the supersector ‘Industrial Goods and Services’ in 12 out of the 16 criteria that make up the index. Areas that achieved a 100% score for the first time are Environmental reporting, Climate strategy, Occupational health and safety, and Social reporting. TNT maintained its score of 100% in Risk and Crisis Management, Code of Conduct and Compliance, Customer Relationship Management, Fuel Efficiency, Human Capital Development and Talent Attraction and Development.
Peter Bakker, CEO of TNT, commented: “We are extremely proud to maintain our top position in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index. This distinction is all the more outstanding given the difficult economic conditions. It recognizes the constancy of the sustainability efforts of TNT's teams around the world, whom I wish to thank enormously. Our customers will know that we are taking our corporate responsibility very seriously.”
