KERING NAMED SECOND MOST SUSTAINABLE COMPANY ACROSS ALL INDUSTRIES IN THE WORLD AND FIRST IN LUXURY AND FASHION BY CORPORATE KNIGHTS’ 2019 GLOBAL 1OO
Announced at the World Economic Forum in Davos today, Kering has been named the world’s second most sustainable company across all industries by the Corporate Knights’ 2019 Global 100 Index. As further recognition of its continued sustainability leadership in its own industry, Kering has ranked first in the Luxury and Apparel and Accessories sectors for the 2nd year in a row. 
 
The annual Corporate Knights’ Global 100 rating index is considered one of the leading benchmarks for corporate sustainability world-wide and reflects the best performing businesses in relation to long-term economic, environmental and social criteria. The 2019 Global 100 Index has been devised from a starting universe of some 7,500 companies with $1B+ in revenues. To achieve its leadership position, Kering was assessed against 21 key performance indicators (KPIs) covering resource management, employee management, financial management, clean revenue and supplier performance.
 
Marie-Claire Daveu, Chief Sustainability Officer and Head of international institutional affairs at Kering, said today: “The Corporate Knights’ Global 100 Index stands as a barometer for corporate sustainability and we are proud to be recognized as the most sustainable company in the Luxury sector and in Apparel and Accessories. We are also pleased to have placed second across all industries. This reflects our dedication and perseverance to embed sustainability best practices across our business activities and it also acts as a ‘proof of concept’ that a business can achieve financial success while delivering positive social and environmental outcomes.
