DJSI recognises Galp as the most sustainable company in the world in its sector

Galp is the world's most sustainable company in the Oil & Gas Upstream & Integrated sector in 2021, according to the criteria of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI). The DJSI is one of the leading international benchmark indices for environmental, social and governance practices employed by world-leading companies in sustainability.

"This recognition highlights Galp's strategy to progressively decarbonise its portfolio and operations. In Galp, we have been focusing both on improving the sustainability of our operations today as well as our investment in new, clean sources of energy, for the future. We believe in transparent reporting of our performance today as well as target setting for the long term. This acknowledgment recognises the progress we have made so far, as well as our path towards regenerating the future together with our customers and society", highlights Andy Brown.

In the DJSI World ranking, Galp came first among the 54 companies evaluated.

According to the 2021 results of the DJSI indices, Galp also leads in the specific categories of "Climate Strategy", "Water Related Risks", "Environmental Reporting", "Social Reporting", "Labour Practice Indicators" and “Environmental Policy & Management Systems”.
