Polymetal has been reaffirmed as a member of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices

17 November 2020

Following the 2020 Corporate Sustainability Assessment by S&P, Polymetal was added to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (“DJSI”) World for the first time and retained its place in DJSI Emerging Markets.

Within DJSI, Polymetal has been rated as a sustainability leader in the Materials industry together with 16 other companies, having improved its score by 6 points compared to the previous year and remaining the only company in the index with major assets in the CIS.

The annual Corporate Sustainability Assessment conducted by S&P is aimed at highlighting companies leading in environmental, social and governance indicators, which are a key focal point of attention today for investors, policy makers, employees and other stakeholder groups.

“Our continuing membership in the DJSI indices means that not only have we retained the same level of corporate responsibility and information disclosure, but have also made significant progress in integrating sustainability into all areas of our business. We are proud of all our colleagues who are involved in maintaining high ESG standards that are set by our stakeholders and the company itself”, said Daria Goncharova, Chief Sustainability Officer of Polymetal.
