Edenred joins the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI)

Edenred has been added as a member to the DJSI Europe in recognition of its commitment to social and environmental responsibility.

Edenred has been added to the DJSI Europe members in the the "Commercial & Professional Services" industry group.
Edenred is one of the 23 French companies in the DJSI Europe, which lists about 180 companies headquartered in Europe.

A benchmark for businesses

The Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) is a collaboration between the Zürich based RobecoSAM, an asset manager specialized in sustainability investment and S&P Dow Jones Indices and was first launched in 1999. The DJSI was the first worldwide index to rank companies on the basis of their performance in the realm of corporate sustainability.
The index assesses businesses along three dimensions: economic, environmental and social, covering criteria such as governance, human resources policy, human rights and environmental impact.

The DJSI uses their own specific methodology, which are based on:

  • the results of the Corporate Sustainability Assessment which RobecoSAM sends to the approximately 2500 companies eligible for the DJSI.
  • the companies' official publications (registration document, institutional website, etc.)

Edenred now features in the two most renowned sustainability indices in the world:

  • the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, since 2013
  • the FTSE4Good, since 2011

 These indices are important indicators that guide the investment choices made by analysts and SRI investors (socially responsible investing).



Edenred is a leading digital platform for services and payments and the everyday companion for people at work, connecting more than 52 million users and 2 million partner merchants in 45 countries via close to 1 million corporate clients.
