Banco Santander was again included in this year´s Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), the international benchmark that measures the sustainable behavior of companies in the economic, environmental and social arenas.
In its 2017 review of a total of 212 financial entities, only 28 were included in the index.
With a score of 89 points out of 100, Banco Santander was recognized by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index as one of the 10 most highly rated banks in the world for the second year in a row, and the first in Spain for its sustainability management.
The DJSI awarded the Bank its highest score for managing its environmental footprint, its positioning in renewable energy and energy efficiency financing and its financial inclusion programs, among other factors.
In the last year, Santander improved its score in the sustainability rankings of other prestigious agencies such as Sustainalitycs, MSCI, Oekom and Vigeo, and it continues to be included in the FTSE4Good index, where its results have also improved.
