Dow Jones Sustainability Indices logo with Orocobre proud to once again be included September 17, 2019

Orocobre is proud to once again be included among the world’s sustainability leaders in the 2019 Dow Jones Sustainability Indices.

Dow Jones Indices, one of the world’s leading index providers, together with SAM, the business unit within RobecoSAM, which specialises in providing Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) data, ratings, and benchmarking, has announced the results of the annual Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) review.

At the same time, this year marks the 20th anniversary of the DJSI World as the global standard for measuring and advancing corporate ESG practices. Since its pioneering launch in 1999, the DJSI World has achieved iconic status as the global standard for measuring and advancing corporate ESG practices. It was the first global index to track the largest and leading sustainability-driven publicly listed companies.

Orocobre takes pride in being able to benchmark the Company’s performance and progress objectively each year via the RobecoSAM Corporate Sustainability Assessment: a challenging and comprehensive assessment that evaluates ESG considerations across every part of the business. This is an invaluable process for the Company, and a pertinent reference point for all our investors.

To be included as a member of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices for the second year running, and therefore the first two years of commercial production at the Olaroz Lithium Facility is a strong indicator of the Company’s commitment to sustainability, operational efficiency and our dedication to the Shared Value program.

Orocobre’s Shared Value program extends beyond that of philanthropy and social responsibility, and seeks to deliver sustained, long-term value for both local communities and our operations through the development of initiatives aligned with the program’s five pillars: Education, Empowerment, Transparency, Natural Resources and Production, and Health.
