Jacobs gains global recognition for sustainability leadership


Jacobs has been recognised in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index and CDP A List.

Jacobs has earned a place in the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability World Index 2022 and a position in CDP’s A List for the first time. The company has also received a gold medal in the EcoVadis sustainability ratings and was recognised as a leading organisation in the Wall Street Journal’s 250 Best-Managed Companies of 2022.

“We are honored to be recognised as a sustainability leader through these prestigious global standards,” said Jacobs chair and CEO Steve Demetriou. “This is testament to the work of our people who are committed to building a net zero future through the sustainable, resilient and nature-positive solutions we co-create with our public and private sector clients around the world,” he said.

The Dow Jones Sustainability World Index, which launched in 1999, tracks the financial performance of leading sustainability-driven companies worldwide. Jacobs is one of only 325 organisations globally to make the list, out of the more than 10,000 publicly traded companies that are invited to participate in the assessment.

CDP’s annual environmental disclosure and scoring process is widely recognised as the gold standard of corporate environmental transparency. Jacobs is one of only 283 companies that achieved an ‘A’ score out of nearly 15,000 companies scored. This is the first year Jacobs has been recognized on the A List.

CDP global director of corporations and supply chains Dexter Galvin said: “Congratulations to all the companies on this year’s A List. Environmental transparency is the first vital step towards a net zero and nature-positive future. In a year of ever-increasing environmental concerns around the world – from extreme weather to unprecedented losses to nature – the need for transformational, urgent and collaborative change is more critical than ever.”

Jacobs recently received additional sustainability credentials, including a gold medal from EcoVadis, the body that rates and continually monitors companies’ corporate social responsibility management and progress. They also also made the Wall Street Journal’s 250 Best-Managed Companies 2022 ranking, which measures corporate effectiveness in customer satisfaction, employee engagement and development, innovation, social responsibility and financial strength.
