Danish ingredients company Danisco announced this week that it has achieved second place in Dow Jones' new global sustainability index for food manufacturers, the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index.

"It's a very fine acknowledgement of the efforts we have put into this area over the past years,"​ said Soren Vogelsang, vice president, sustainable development at Danisco.

"Danisco's inclusion in the Index is important in relation to customers and investors. Clearly, both groups are increasingly focusing on companies' work on sustainability, which was why we applied for a listing in the index, and coming in second exceeds all our expectations."

Updated once a year, the basis of the Dow Jones Index is an assessment of a company's financial, environmental and social dimensions. Danisco​ will hold its position of second place, just beneath food giant Unilever in first place, for at least one year.

"We supply products to Unilever and several other companies listed in the index, so no doubt our inclusion in the index will be noticed,"​ Soren Vogelsang added.

Danisco will publish its next Sustainability Report in October.
