Poste Italiane entra per il quarto anno consecutivo negli indici di sostenibilità Dow Jones

Poste Italiane has reaffirmed its position as a leader in the field of sustainability by being on, for the fourth consecutive year, the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index and the more selective Dow Jones Sustainability Europe Index. The Group obtained a score of 87/100, awarded by Standard & Poor’s Global through the Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) 2022, which places it in first place among Italian companies in the insurance sector for its performance in the area of governance, also gaining further recognition for its policies and practices in the social sphere. Standard & Poor’s Global compares companies from 61 sectors, assessing their sustainability performance in a comprehensive manner. The Dow Jones Sustainability World Index tracks the performance of the top 10% of the 2,500 largest listed companies within the S&P Global Broad Market Index, while the Dow Jones Sustainability Europe Index tracks the performance of the top 20% of the 600 largest on the European continent. It is therefore the evaluation obtained on the basis of the results of the CSA of S&P Global, the leading global benchmark in sustainability, that determines the selection of companies to be included on the indices.


‘Being part of one of the most prestigious sustainability indices at international level for the fourth consecutive year is a source of great pride,’ comments CEO Matteo Del Fante, ‘and strengthens our leadership among listed companies in the concrete application of sustainability principles. The result allows us to keep our global reputation high and makes us a safe and reliable reference point for investors’. ‘Being on the Dow Jones indexes for the fourth consecutive year,’ said Co-General Manager Giuseppe Lasco, ‘is an indisputable sign of the Group’s ability to integrate environmental, social and governance issues into its business strategy and risk management. Today’s achievement is confirmation of the soundness and effectiveness of our approach to sustainability policies.
