Ranked in the 96th Percentile in the Software Category for Outstanding Environmental, Social and Governance Practices
Teradata (NYSE: TDC), the connected multi-cloud data platform for enterprise analytics company, today announced it has once again been included on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), one of the world's most trusted environmental, social, and governance (ESG) benchmarks. Teradata earned an overall sustainability score of 53, compared to an industry average of 20, ranking it in the 96th percentile. This means that Teradata scored equal to or higher than 96% of companies in the global software industry ranked in the DJSI.
"At Teradata, corporate social responsibility is a core tenet of how we do business. While integrity remains a cornerstone of our operating principles, we also feel obligated to take a responsible and sustainable view of how we can and should impact the world we live in," said Claire Bramley, CFO of Teradata. "It’s gratifying to see that our ongoing commitment to ESG is being recognized by such a respected organization and we’re honored to again be listed on the 2021 Dow Jones Sustainability World and North America Indices."
Pioneered in 1999, the DJSI leverages a Corporate Sustainability Assessment to measure the top 10% of the largest 2,500 companies in the S&P Global Broad Market Index against long-term economic, environmental, and social criteria. The annual evaluation scores companies based on global ESG practices, comparing numerous, varied industries on both financial and industry-specific criteria. The DJSI index is also particularly valuable to investors who integrate sustainability considerations into their portfolios.
"We congratulate Teradata for being included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for the World and North America indices,” said Manjit Jus, Global Head of ESG Research, S&P Global. “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 a testament to the growing movement for ESG disclosure and transparency.”
