Owens Corning announced on Thursday that it had earned a place on the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index, or DJSI World, for the 14th consecutive year and on the DJSI North America Index for the sixth consecutive year, with industry-leading assessment scores.
The DJSI World comprises a list of the world’s largest companies based on long-term environmental, social, and governance criteria. OC said in a Dec. 14 news release that companies are selected for inclusion in the DJSI in part based on their scores in the S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment.
Owens Corning scored 85 out of a possible 100 points overall in the 2023 S&P Global CSA (score date: Dec. 8, 2023), achieving the highest score of all the companies assessed in the building products industry.
“We are honored to have been recognized by DJSI for the 14th consecutive year,” said Chair and Chief Executive Officer Brian Chambers. “Our industry-leading score is a testament to Owens Corning’s unwavering commitment to sustainability and our progress toward achieving our 2030 sustainability goals.”
Owens Corning noted it had earned several other distinctions for its corporate sustainability leadership in 2023, including ranking in the top 10 for the sixth year in a row on 3BL Media’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens list and selection by Ethisphere as one of the 2023 World’s Most Ethical Companies.
“I’m always proud [of] our team when Owens Corning’s industry leadership in sustainability is highlighted through recognitions like DJSI,” said Senior Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer David Rabuano. “There’s no question that our 19,000 employees are the material difference driving our results.”
As a global building and construction materials leader, Owens Corning has made delivering “sustainable solutions” a cornerstone of its manufacturing and communications efforts. “We remain dedicated to providing sustainable solutions to our customers and making a positive impact on the world,” Chambers added.
