Datwyler is part of the new SIX ESG-Indices

Datwyler is part of the two new SPI ESG indices for equities listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange. This is in recognition of its long-standing commitment to the various aspects of sustainability. Since 2009, Datwyler has been a member of the UN Global Compact and publishes a sustainability report. By 2030, Datwyler aims to achieve climate neutrality for its own operations at all locations.

The Swiss stock exchange SIX launched new ESG indices in the Swiss equity and bond markets. These cover the sustainability criteria of environment, social/society and governance. Datwyler is part of the two new SPI ESG for equities. In developing its ESG indices, SIX has drawn on data sources including the independent Swiss sustaina-bility rating agency Inrate. The ESG Impact Rating developed by Inrate measures the positive and negative impacts of companies on the environment and society. To be included in the indices, a company must have an ESG Impact Rating of at least a C+ and generate no more than five percent of its revenue in a critical sector.

«We are proud to be part of the two new SPI ESG indices for equities. This is a tribute to our long-standing com-mitment to the various aspects of sustainability», says Datwyler CEO Dirk Lambrecht.

Advancing of sustainability at Datwyler is one of four strategic priorities. Datwyler has been a member of UN Global Compact since 2009 already, and will publish the thirteenth sustainability report as per the Global Reporting Initi-ative’s (GRI) guidelines this year. Being a socially and environmentally responsible company, Datwyler wants to do its bit for attaining the UN Sustainable Development Goals. An interdisciplinary project group is working on a new sustainability and climate strategy with the goal of achieving carbon neutrality for its own activities (scope 1 and 2) at all sites by 2030 based on the Science Based Targets concept. Datwyler already obtains 35% of its global electricity needs from renewable energy sources.
