Groupe Eurotunnel joins the FTSE4Good index, in recognition for success of CSR programme
Groupe Eurotunnel, the NYSE Euronext Paris and NYSE Euronext London quoted Channel Tunnel operator, will from now on be included in the FTSE4Good index, following its September update. The FTSE4Good is an index for companies with strong environmental, social and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) performance.
Groupe Eurotunnel has always focused on CSR, whether in terms of the environment, where it has achieved a continuous reduction in greenhouse gasses (Eurotunnel is the only cross Channel operator to publish an annual carbon statement), in a social context, with the distribution of free shares to employees and the signature of a series of agreements on working conditions, or in terms of corporate governance.
These achievements and the improvement in its financial position have enable the group to reach a market capitalisation of €5.7 billion, at the close of business on 21 November 2014, firmly positioning it amongst the largest international groups.
Groupe Eurotunnel is conscious that an increasing number of investors consider CSR policy to be an essential criterion for investment.
Eurotunnel and its 300,000 individual shareholders are delighted to have been selected from the many companies that make up the FTSE All Share index and the Groupe will continue its progress in this field.
