Duke Energy has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for North America for the 16th consecutive year as the company leads one of the largest clean energy transformations in the country.
"Being recognized for 16 continuous years on the DJSI for North America is incredibly validating," said Katherine Neebe, Duke Energy's chief sustainability officer and president, Duke Energy Foundation. "It shows our clean energy transformation is delivering what many of our stakeholders expect. This underscores that our business success can also drive progress on important societal outcomes, like climate change and diversity, equity and inclusion."
Since 1999, the DJSI has evaluated the sustainability of leading companies worldwide.
In selecting the top performers in each business sector, the DJSI reviews companies on several general and industry-specific topics related to economic, environmental and social dimensions.
Among the topics are corporate governance, innovation management, environmental policy, climate strategy, human capital development and corporate citizenship.
The index is compiled annually by S&P Global.
Since 2007, Duke Energy has published an annual Sustainability Report that shares our progress on important issues and helps hold us accountable to achieve our goals. The 2020 report is available online.
