Exelon Makes Dow Jones Sustainability Index For Eighth Consecutive Year; Only U.S. Utility On CDP Global Indexes For Climate Performance And Disclosure

Stocks in this article: EXC

Two separate global authorities on corporate sustainability – the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) and CDP – have recognized Exelon for its sustainability performance and climate change performance and reporting.

DJSI and sustainability investing specialist RobecoSAM named Exelon to the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index for the eighth year in a row. The achievement distinguishes Exelon as a consistent industry leader in corporate sustainability based on a rigorous assessment of the company’s economic, environmental and social performance.

Exelon was included in the index for placing among the top 20 percent of North American utility companies based on responses to more than 100 questions covering corporate governance, risk management, environmental performance, human resources development, corporate citizenship, and health and safety.

“We have an obligation to our customers, communities, employees and shareholders to operate our business in a way that is economically, environmentally and socially sustainable, and we take that responsibility very seriously,” said Christopher M. Crane, president and CEO of Exelon. “This recognition validates our long-term commitment to improving sustainability performance at all levels.”

Recognized for carbon emissions performance, disclosure

In addition to DJSI, CDP named Exelon to both its Global 500 Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) and its Climate Performance Leadership Index (CPLI) for the second year in a row. No other U.S.-based utility company appeared on either the Global 500 CDLI or CPLI.

These annual indexes, based on analysis by PwC, recognize companies that lead their industries worldwide in the disclosure of information regarding their carbon footprints, climate change strategies and risk management, and in taking action on climate change mitigation, adaptation and transparency. The top 10 percent of responding companies, based on the completeness and quality of their CDP submissions, are named to the indexes. Exelon received a carbon disclosure score of 98 out of 100 in 2013 – an increase from its score of 94 in 2012 – and again fell within the “A” band, the highest performance band for emissions.
