TEMPE, Ariz., Nov. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — NortonLifeLock (NASDAQ: NLOK), a global leader in consumer Cyber Safety, 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. NortonLifeLock earned a sustainability score of 50, ranking in the 95th percentile in the software category.
“NortonLifeLock brings together our team, expertise, and powerful technology to help build a safe, inclusive, and sustainable future,” said Vincent Pilette, CEO of NortonLifeLock. “We are honored to again be recognized as a sustainability leader and to 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.
In this year’s analysis, NortonLifeLock earned its notable ranking for the following factors: corporate governance, codes of business conduct, and tax strategy. The company also once again scored in the 99th percentile for corporate citizenship and philanthropy efforts. Examples of NortonLifeLock’s FY21 ESG efforts that contributed to the company’s performance include:
- Philanthropy: As a result of a culture of giving, NortonLifeLock providd $1.9M in charitable giving to high-impact nonprofits. Additionally, with a value of over $4 million, NortonLifeLock product donations helped nonprofits, public libraries, and families keep their devices and data secure. These efforts put the company in the 99th percentile in 2021.
- Environmental Stewardship: NortonLifeLock achieved a score of 100 in the Climate Change Strategy subcategory and plans to release additional elements of its environmental stewardship efforts, including the results of a recent product lifecycle analysis, later this year.
- Corporate Governance: A milestone for NortonLifeLock in FY21 was reaching gender parity for the independent members of the Board of Directors with the appointment of two female directors. This helped the company achieve a score of 100 in the Board Gender Diversity DJSI subcategory.
- Codes of Conduct: NortonLifeLock has a strong commitment to ethics and is proud to have achieved a score of 100 for the company’s Code of Conduct, Global Supplier Code of Conduct, and additional ethical safeguards including Global Procurement Policy, Global Anti-Corruption and Bribery Policy, and Global Antitrust and Competition Policy.
