Deutsche Börse has included HOCHTIEF in a newly created index for sustainable companies. The DAX 50 ESG takes into account the biggest listed German corporations not only in terms of market capitalization and trading volumes, but also evaluates how intensively companies deal with environmental protection, social issues and good corporate governance.
For this purpose, Deutsche Börse has selected the best 50 German companies, according to its criteria, from the traditional indices DAX, MDAX and TecDAX. The criteria applied for the creation of the index include, amongst others, the principles of the UN Global Compact.
Alongside integrity, accountability, innovation and delivery, sustainability is one of the HOCHTIEF Group's guiding principles. HOCHTIEF has been included in the internationally renowned Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for more than ten years. HOCHTIEF also cooperates with the International Labour Organization (ILO) and as a member of the Global Compact of the United Nations, it supports its principles on labor standards, environmental protection and social responsibility.
