Visteon was selected based on the numerous practices initiated within the company, including environmental management systems, ethics training, formal codes of conduct and community involvement.Through its Visteon Fund, for example, employees around the globe are able to recommend charitable organizations within the local community that focus on children and the environment to receive corporate donations.
"Each year the standards for selection to the index become more rigorous as stakeholder expectations for corporate commitment to sustainability issues increase," says Gary Mayo, Visteon's director of Corporate Social Responsibility. "Visteon's selection to the index for the third year in a row is confirmation of our dedication to pursue best practices with regard to our business, the communities in which we operate and environmental stewardship."
The index influences the investment decisions of 45 asset managers who use the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index as an objective benchmark for investment portfolios designed to support companies that follow the principles of sustainability.
