Hydro has qualified for the worldwide category of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI World) for the sixth year in a row. The company also qualified this year - for the second time - for the DJSI STOXX, which covers Europe.

Launched in 1999, the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes are the first global indexes tracking the financial performance of the leading sustainability-driven companies worldwide. Based on the cooperation of Dow Jones Indexes, STOXX Limited and SAM, they provide asset managers with reliable and objective benchmarks to manage sustainability portfolios.

Hydro has responded this year as an aluminium company for the second time, and holds a position in the DJSI Industry Group Aluminium along with Alcoa. This group is currently led by Alcan.
