AbbVie tops biotech sector rankings in Dow Jones Sustainability Index

13th September 2017

AbbVie has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), a leading global benchmark of 3,900 companies based on environmental, social and governance practices.

The company was listed as the top-performing business in the biotechnology sector for the second consecutive year, earning the highest overall score among the 40 companies in this category and leading the industry on 13 of 25 criteria.

On environmental reporting and policy influence, AbbVie scored a perfect 100, while its labour practice indicator and human capital development scores showed the greatest increases from 2016, both increasing by more than 15 points.

The inclusion in the 2017 list means that AbbVie has been listed on both the DJSI World and DJSI North America indices every year since its foundation in 2013.

Richard Gonzalez, chairman of the board and chief executive officer at AbbVie, said: "We believe strong research must be paired with a strong commitment to the communities we serve. We are grateful to DJSI for this recognition, and will continue our ongoing efforts to improve sustainability."
