DP World Tops Middle Eastern Index
DP World has been announced as topping the S&P/Hawkamah Pan Arab Environmental, Social and Governance Index for the third time.
The index measures the performance of the 50 best performing stocks once at the end of each year and later announces the names of the top 10 companies.
DP World was chosen out of the top 150 Pan Arab companies by total market capitalisation, which were listed on the Middle Eastern and North African markets in countries which include Egypt and Jordan.
Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, Chairman of DP World, said: “We are delighted that DP World has won this accolade for the third successive year which underlines our performance and corporate governance standards.
“The Index is a barometer for sustainable companies and those who score highly on it are viewed favourably by investors. They see it as evidence of a commitment over the long term to the environment, social responsibility and governance of their business.
“A hat trick of wins is rare and we believe the award recognises the reputation of DP World as a world leader in trade and its sector.”
