Who moves Austria

International standing in the field of sustainability

Sustainability pioneer: VBV headquarters in Vienna

Austrian companies are also successfully involved in the global sustainability arena. OMV was recently included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index DJSI for the second time. This lists the most sustainable ten percent of the largest 2.500 companies in the S&P Global Index. In contrast to traditional share or purely ecologically-oriented indices, the DJSI evaluates the sustainability leadership of companies based on economic, ecological and social criteria. And the pioneering work of VBV-Vorsorgekasse in the field of sustainability was rewarded on a global level. VBV, which joined the Principles for Responsible Investment PRI initiative in 2008, has now been included in the newly created PRI Leaders Group. The sustainability network for institutional investors supported by the United Nations has set itself the goal of developing a more sustainable global financial system.
