Liberty Global Named To Dow Jones Sustainability World And North America Indexes

Liberty Global, Inc. (“Liberty Global” or “LGI,”) (NASDAQ: LBTYA, LBTYB and LBTYK) today announced its inclusion on both the Dow Jones Sustainability World and North America Indexes. Liberty Global’s addition to the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI) is a result of its ongoing progress on corporate responsibility (CR) initiatives and participation in the SAM Corporate Sustainability Assessment, an in-depth analysis of a corporation's economic, environmental, governance and social performance. The DJSI World index tracks the performance of the world’s top ten percent in terms of sustainability for each market sector.

"We are proud to be included in these well-respected indices because they recognize our achievements in the area of corporate responsibility. Strong, sustainable business practices reduce our impact on the environment and strengthen the communities in which we operate”, said Liberty Global President and CEO Mike Fries.

Liberty Global’s CR strategy is grouped into four main areas: (1) promoting a digital society; (2) building trust with our customers; (3) managing our environmental impact; and (4) being a responsible business. Our CR framework, resulting from transparent engagement with our stakeholders, integrates this strategy into our operations through a range of programs.
