Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd (M&M) has entered the World Index list of companies in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) 2021.
Out of the five Indian companies featuring in the World Index this year, two are Mahindra Group companies – M&M and Tech Mahindra.
M&M is the first Indian automobile and components’ company to enter the World Index of DJSI.
While M&M also features in the Emerging Market Index of DJSI for the 12th time in a row, Tech Mahindra has been a member of both the World Index and the Emerging Market Index for the last seven years. This year, there are only 13 other Indian companies in the Emerging Market Index.
Commenting on the achievement, Dr. Anish Shah, Managing Director & CEO, M&M Ltd, said, “This recognition comes at a time when all of us are fresh from COP26 discussions and revitalising our sustainability agenda. We believe that we have crossed the threshold on technology readiness in many industries including auto – this is a major shift from past years.”
Being a part of the World Index “is a validation of the path taken by M&M to build a sustainable business,” he said.
