Infineon Remains Among the World’s Most Sustainable Companies: Company Has Been Listed In The Prestigious Sustainability Yearbook Again
Neubiberg, Germany – January 23, 2014 – Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) has been listed in the prestigious Sustainability Yearbook by Swiss investment company RobecoSAM for the fourth consecutive year. Hence the German semiconductor manufacturer ranks again among the world’s most sustainable companies.
In September 2013, Infineon had been listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index – also for the fourth time in a row. The Sustainability Yearbook is based on the index score. The requirements to be listed are more challenging than in the past. This year it was not enough for companies to rank amongst the top 15 percent of their industry to be listed – they also had to achieve a score within the 30 percent of the best-performing companies in their industry.
The Sustainability Yearbook is the world’s most comprehensive publication on corporate sustainability. Every year, it assesses and documents the sustainability performance of over 2,000 corporations. This year’s edition remarks the increased power of entities such as local authorities, communities and NGOs and how their actions can affect companies’ revenues and reputations.
“The renewed inclusion in the Sustainability Yearbook demonstrates that we don’t just talk about sustainability, but we practice it through our daily operations. We have built a positive relationship with our stakeholders such as employees, customers, suppliers, investors, communities and the government, and work with them to create a real sustainable business. This has been recognized in the listing of Infineon among the ten best companies in the semiconductor sector,” says Dominik Asam, Chief Financial Officer of Infineon Technologies AG and responsible for sustainability.
Infineon Technologies AG, Neubiberg, Germany, offers semiconductor and system solutions addressing three central challenges to modern society: energy efficiency, mobility, and security. In the 2013 fiscal year (ending September 30), the Company reported sales of €3.84 billion with around 26,700 employees worldwide. Infineon is listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (ticker symbol: IFX) and in the USA on the over-the-counter market OTCQX International Premier (ticker symbol: IFNNY).Further information is available at www.infineon.com
