Republic Services, Inc. was named to both the 2020 Dow Jones Sustainability (DJSI) World and North America Indices for the fifth consecutive year. The recognition highlights Republic’s ongoing commitment to long-term economic, governance, environmental and social objectives.
“Republic Services is honored to be recognized for a fifth straight year on the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices, an accomplishment that spotlights the progress we’re making toward our long-term sustainability goals,” said Donald W. Slager, chief executive officer. “As an industry leader, we believe we must set an example, which is why we’ve built sustainable business practices into our daily operations.”
Republic Services received industry-leading scores for climate strategy and materiality. The climate score was driven by the Company’s SBTi-approved science-based target to reduce Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, Republic scored over 90 percent in categories including corporate governance, policy influence, labor practice indicators and code of business conduct.
Republic Services continues to steadily build upon its sustainability platform while earning notable third-party recognition, including the CDP Climate A List, Ethisphere’s 2020 World’s Most Ethical Companies, 3BL Media’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens and Forbes’ 2020 Best Employers for Women.
