TNT Tops Sustainability Index

Sept. 8, 2009
For the third consecutive year, TNT NV earned a top spot on the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes

TNT NV was named as global ‘Supersector Leader’ for Industrial Goods and Services (including industrial transportation) of the 2009 Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI). TNT earned the highest score of all companies included in the DJSI for the third consecutive year.

These are the conclusions of a report published in Zurich by SAM, a sustainability investment specialist, which assessed the sustainability performance of over 1,000 publicly traded companies.

TNT earned an overall score of 95 out of a possible 100, an improvement over last year’s score of 92. In addition, TNT earned the highest score in two of the indexes' dimensions—economic and social—and showed a score improvement in the environmental dimension.

Areas where TNT achieved a 100% score for the first time are Environmental Reporting, Climate Strategy, Occupational Health and Safety, and Social Reporting.

“We are extremely proud to maintain our top position in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index,” said Peter Bakker, CEO of TNT. “This distinction is all the more outstanding given the difficult economic conditions. It recognizes the constancy of the sustainability efforts of TNT's teams around the world, whom I wish to thank enormously. Our customers will know that we are taking our corporate responsibility very seriously.”
