Lundin Energy AB (Lundin Energy) is pleased to announce that it has been included in the S&P Global Dow Jones Sustainability Europe Index (DJSI) for the first time, and ranked as one of the top three Companies in Europe within its industry. The DJSI comprises European ESG leaders and represents the top 20 percent of ranked companies from the largest 600 European companies in the S&P Global Broad Market Index.

Lundin Energy attained a score in the 93rd percentile in S&P Global’s Corporate Sustainability Assessment, which covers an exhaustive list of ESG topics, resulting in inclusion in the highly prestigious DJSI. The DJSI was launched in 1999 and is an index which investors use to integrate sustainability considerations into their portfolios; comprised of corporate leaders in sustainability as identified by S&P Global.

Lundin Energy also continues to achieve top quartile performance across other major ESG ratings, including MSCI (AA rating), Sustainalytics (Medium Risk, top 5% in the industry), CDP (A- rating), Moody’s V.E (Top 3 industry leader) and ISS ESG (Prime Status). Lundin Energy is also a constituent of the FTSE4Good Index.

Zomo Fisher, Vice President Sustainability of Lundin Energy, commented:
“This is the first time we have been included in the DJSI and our inclusion will open Lundin Energy up to investors who acknowledge the positive impact oil and gas companies can have in the energy transition. With our market leading decarbonisation plan on track to deliver carbon neutrality by 2023 and focus on driving sustainable, responsible operations and behaviour throughout our organisation and supply chain, I am very pleased our efforts have been endorsed by the DJSI.”
