Atlas Copco Included in Dow Jones Sustainability Index for Third Consecutive Year

Inclusion in the index based on annual company assessments and comparison to industry peers.

The Atlas Copco Group (Atlas Copco AB) has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the third consecutive year.

“Sustainable productivity lies at the heart of Atlas Copco’s commitment to innovation and growth,” said Jim Levitt, president, Atlas Copco North America LLC. “We continually strive to increase productivity in ways that make a positive impact on society and the environment, and we are honored to be included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index again in 2013.”

Inclusion in the Sustainability Index is based on annual company assessments and comparison to industry peers. Key factors in this review include management of opportunities and associated risk that are derived from economic, environmental and social developments. Corporate governance and strategy, as well as key performance indicators like emission and waste, are also taken into consideration.

Earlier this year, Atlas Copco was named a “leader” in the FTSE4Good Index, which measures globally recognized corporate responsibility standards in environmental, social and governance practices. Atlas Copco is also a member of the Top 100 Global Sustainable Companies and is ranked one of the world’s most ethical companies by the Ethisphere Institute.

In 2013, Forbes magazine listed Atlas Copco among the world’s 100 most innovative companies for the third year in a row.
