Investors who are committed to sustainable companies now have at their disposal the new selection of the FTSE4Good, an index created by FTSE Russell to measure the performance of companies that demonstrate solid environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices.
This year, Argos, the Colombian cement company of Grupo Argos, repeats its position among the leading companies in the construction materials sector with the best environmental practices. Argos is the only Colombian company in this category among North American, European and Asian organisations.
The companies are evaluated on more than 150 indicators that cover topics such as: efficient use of water, climate change, biodiversity, health and safety, labor standards, human rights and communities, fiscal transparency, corporate governance and anti-corruption.
María Isabel Echeverri, Argos’s Legal and Sustainability Vice President, said: “We are very excited about being included in the FTSE4Good because it recognises the importance of sustainability management and value creation for us, as well as the efforts we have been making to communicate our goals in a transparent and timely manner in environmental, social commitments and government aspects”.
This news joins the recognition received by Argos in the latest version of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index where it was also listed as one of the most sustainable companies in the world in its sector. The company was also awarded the silver medal in the S&P Global Sustainability Yearbook 2021.
