// Moncler named textiles, apparel and luxury goods industry leader in Dow Jones Sustainability Index
// The index ranks 3500 companies based on economic growth, environmental considerations & social sustainability
Moncler has been recognised as the Industry Leader in the textiles, apparel and luxury goods sector in the latest Dow Jones Sustainability Index.
This is the first time that the luxury Italian retailer has been included in the index.
Moncler was credited for its plan to be carbon neutral on its global direct emissions by 2021 and for being a signatory of The Fashion Pact launched at the G7 last month, which aims to combat the climate crisis.
Now in its 20th year, the Dow Jones Sustainability Index ranks 3500 of the biggest publicly listed companies based on economic growth, environmental considerations and social sustainability.
“At Moncler, we have long been committed to creating value for all stakeholders through the continuous integration of sustainability into our business model,” Moncler chief executive Remo Ruffini said.
“A lot has been done to date, but we know that we need to do much more in order to find solutions to the imminent social and environmental challenges facing humankind globally.
“Entering the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices as Industry Leader is an extraordinary result.”
