The Global Sustainability Index was first launched in 1999

S&P Global, the world’s largest provider of market indexes, says a record 1,728 companies eligible for selection into one of the S&P Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes participated in the 2022 review, a 9% increase over 2021. The initiative reviewed an estimated 13.4 million data points to arrive at its 2022 indexes.

“Last year, more companies than ever before participated in S&P’s global Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA),” said President and CEO Douglas Peterson in a report accompanying the release of the indexes. “The CSA forms the backbone of the research on which this report is based. We thank the companies that have participated in this process, demonstrating their continued commitment to transparency regarding ESG performance. “

Unlike ESG DataSets, which are based solely on publicly available information, the S&P Dow Jones says its review is based on a combination of company disclosures through a comprehensive survey, as well as media coverage of the companies reviewed and stakeholder analysis.

The Global Sustainability Index was first launched in 1999, making it one of the oldest sustainability/ESG (environmental, social and governance) rankings.

Cummins was last listed on the S&P Dow Jones Sustainability World Index in 2013, before returning to the list in 2021 and now in 2022. The company said it is committed to playing a leading role in the global effort to reduce carbon emissions while implementing programs to promote gender equality around the world and addressing institutional racism in the United States.

The ranking evaluates the largest publicly traded U.S. companies in five key areas-customer satisfaction, employee engagement and development, innovation, social responsibility, and financial strength-to arrive at an effectiveness score.
