The group Kering has been recognized as one of the world’s most sustainable corporations, according to the Corporate Knights’ Global 100 index published at the World Economic Forum in Davos today. This marks the Group’s first inclusion in the Global 100 and is based on the evaluation of its sustainability performance in 2015, a year during which Kering Group notably published its first Environmental Profit & Loss results and open-sourced the tool’s methodology. The index is devised from a starting universe of 4,353 listed companies who represented a market capitalization greater than $2 billion (USD) on 1 October 2015.
“Kering is very honored to be named one of the Global 100 most sustainable corporations in the world here in Davos today. […] With 2016 to mark the redefinition of Kering’s current Sustainability Targets, and the beginning of our strategy’s next chapter, we are entering a crucial period of evaluation and analysis. […] Such cross-industry benchmarks are thus of heightened importance, motivating us to drive our Group toward even greater economic and environmental efficiency,” said Marie-Claire Daveu, Chief Sustainability Officer and Head of international institutional affairs of Kering.
