Arca Continental S.A.B. de C.V. issued the following announcement on Sept. 18.
Arca Continental, one of the most important Coca-Cola bottlers in the world, continues to consolidate its performance and impact on corporate sustainability, reaching the highest international standards. Therefore, it was selected to integrate the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) in its 2019-2020 edition for Latin America (MILA), as part of the companies with the best results in its environmental, social and corporate governance management.
The DJSI, together with RobecoSAM, specializes in assessing the performance, environmental, social and corporate governance of companies, being pioneers in this area and the largest global benchmark for evaluating sustainable business practices. The MILA Pacific Alliance index, to which Arca Continental now belongs, groups the companies with the highest rating in the sustainability assessment carried out by RobecoSAM of the stock exchanges in Mexico, Colombia, Peru and Chile.
“Being included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index is a recognition of the effort we have made all those who work in this company, from the Board of Directors to each of the collaborators, to serve the customer and the consumer in a responsible way with the community and the environment, and endorse our commitment to integrate sustainability more and more into our business strategy, ”said Arturo Gutiérrez Hernández, General Director of Arca Continental.
The entry to the DJSI is added to the announcement of last September 10, when the London Stock Exchange confirmed the participation of Arca Continental, for the fourth consecutive year, in the FTSE4Good Index, which lists the world's public companies that demonstrate a strong commitment to the best environmental, social and corporate governance practices.
