WestRock Named to Dow Jones Sustainability Index for North America for Second Consecutive Year

11/17/2021 | 08:13am EST

Inclusion Demonstrates WestRock’s Unwavering Commitment to Imagining and Delivering on the Promise of a Sustainable Future

WestRock Company (NYSE: WRK), a leading provider of differentiated paper and packaging solutions, today announced that it has been named for the second consecutive year to the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index (DJSI North America), in recognition of its commitment to sustainable business practices. The Index is a widely recognized standard for measuring and advancing corporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices across all industries. DJSI North America recognizes the top 20 percent of sustainability performers among the 600 largest U.S. and Canadian companies.

“We congratulate WestRock for being included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for North America. A DJSI distinction is a reflection of being a sustainability leader in your industry. The record number of companies participating in the 2021 S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment is testament to the growing movement for ESG disclosure and transparency," said Manjit Jus, Global Head of ESG Research and Data, S&P Global.

“At WestRock, we’re creating a world where innovative, fiber-based packaging plays a central role in advancing a more circular economy,” said David Sewell, chief executive officer at WestRock. “We are honored to be included on this year’s Dow Jones Sustainability Index, recognizing our ongoing commitment to imagining and delivering on the promise of a sustainable future.”

Inclusion on the DSJI continues WestRock’s sustainability leadership within its industry. Earlier this year, the company committed to set a science-based target in line with the latest climate science. As fiber-based packaging continues to grow in popularity, WestRock continues to take active steps for – and with – its customers to work toward a more circular economy.
