NN Group is pleased to announce that the company will be included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), both in the DJSI World index and DJSI Europe index, as from 18 September 2017. This shows that NN Group ranks amongst the top 10% of the insurance industry group with regard to sustainability performance. Companies are awarded scores based on their performance in three areas: economic, environmental and social. While the industry average score is 47, NN Group’s overall score is 80 (out of 100).

S&P Dow Jones Indices, one of the world’s leading providers of financial market indices, and RobecoSAM, the investment specialist focused exclusively on sustainability investing, today announced the results of the annual Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) review.

Lard Friese, CEO of NN Group: ‘We aim to create value for our stakeholders and use our resources and expertise to help society achieve long-term, sustainable prosperity.

About the DJSI review

Following a best-in-class approach, the indices measure the performance of the world's sustainability leaders. Companies are selected for the indices based on a comprehensive assessment of long-term economic, environmental and social criteria that account for general as well as industry-specific sustainability trends. Only firms that lead their industries based on this assessment are included in the indices. The indices are created and maintained according to a systematic methodology, allowing investors to appropriately benchmark sustainability-driven funds and derivatives over the long term.
