Wolters Kluwer was named again to the 2014 Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI World and DJSI Europe).

Only 10% of the world's 2,500 largest corporations make the grade for selection in the DJSI World. The ranking is based on a thorough analysis of corporate economic, environmental and social performance, tracking issues such as corporate governance, risk management, branding, resource efficiency, supply chain standards and labor practices.

"We are proud to have once again been included in such an influential ranking," said Nancy McKinstry, CEO and Member of the Executive Board of Wolters Kluwer. "We view sustainability as a critical element in our core business: our sophisticated solutions enable our customers to improve people's lives and to make efficient use of resources all around the world. This recognition is a validation of our efforts to embed sustainability across our company and help ensure the long-term success of our customers."

Wolters Kluwer has been included in the DJSI ranking since 2007 and continues to be recognized for its corporate responsibility performance, most recently as one of the 'Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World' by Corporate Knights.
