Abbott named in Dow Jones Sustainability World Index

10th September 2010

Abbott has been recognised for its commitment to social and environmental responsibility by its inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index.

The pharmaceutical company was listed in the rankings for the sixth consecutive year, achieving 100 per cent scores in environmental management and climate strategy.

It was also recognised as the industry leader according to measures such as standards for suppliers, staff health and safety and responsible marketing practices, recording improved scores compared to last year in 19 out of the 23 categories.

Miles White, chairman and chief executive officer of Abbott, said: "The environments in which we operate … are particularly sensitive and challenging, requiring companies like Abbott to be more thoughtful than ever about the ways we operate our business."

This comes after Abbott announced last month that it is providing funding to humanitarian organisations in order to assist victims of the recent floods in Pakistan, as well as donating products such as antibiotics and vitamins.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-800059981-ADNFCR
