Cenovus Ranked Among The World’s Top Corporate Citizens

Cenovus Energy Inc. (TSX, NYSE: CVE) has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for the first time. Cenovus is the only Canadian integrated oil and gas company to make the World Index this year and one of just 11 Canadian corporations overall. The Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI) recognize companies around the world for leadership in corporate responsibility. Cenovus was also named to the DJSI North America Index for the third year in a row.

“This puts Cenovus on an exclusive list of the world’s best corporate citizens,” said Sheila McIntosh, Cenovus Executive Vice-President, Communications & Stakeholder Relations. “It’s a great achievement and it reaffirms that we are on the right track.”

Cenovus, which was among 25 oil and gas companies to make the world index this year, ranked highly on the DJSI for its environmental performance and corporate governance. The company also scored particularly well in the areas of community investment, occupational health and safety and stakeholder engagement.

“Being named to the DJSI North America Index for a third year, and now to the World Index, sends a strong signal to the investment community,” McIntosh said. “It says that Cenovus is both profitable and a strong corporate citizen and that makes us more attractive to investors around the globe.”

Cenovus recently released its 2011 corporate responsibility report which provides more insight into the company’s performance in the areas assessed for inclusion in the DJSI. The report is available at http://www.cenovus.com/responsibility/cr-report/reporting.html.
