Prosus included in Dow Jones Sustainability Index for Europe

Amsterdam, 16 November 2021: Prosus, the global internet group, has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI Europe).

Prosus was among the top performing European-listed companies reviewed under S&P’s Corporate Sustainability Assessment methodology. The company achieved maximum scores (100 points) in several categories including Board Diversity Policy; Strategy for Emerging Markets; Brand Strategy and Sustainability Strategy; Risk Culture; IT/Cybersecurity Measures; Environmental Reporting Assurance; Climate Risk Management; and Climate-related Management Incentives.

Listed on Euronext Amsterdam in September 2019, Prosus is a global consumer internet group with operations and investments in multiple sectors including food delivery, education technology, online classifieds, and payments and fintech. The company reaches more than two billion customers in over 100 countries, including India, Russia, and Brazil. Through its ventures team, Prosus also backs local technology entrepreneurs who are building the next wave of tech companies in fields such as health, logistics, blockchain, and social commerce.

Manjit Jus, Global Head of ESG Research, S&P Global, said: "We congratulate Prosus for being included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for Europe. A DJSI distinction is a reflection of being a sustainability leader in your industry. The record number of companies participating in the 2021 S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment is testament to the growing movement for ESG disclosure and transparency."

Bob van Dijk, Chief Executive Officer of Prosus, said: “We are very pleased to be included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for Europe just two years after listing on Euronext Amsterdam. As a technology group investing and operating in more than 100 countries, we are acutely aware of our responsibility to make a positive impact on the people and communities we serve at the same time as minimising our environmental impact. Our inclusion in the index is a reflection of our desire to create sustainable businesses that will stand the test of time.”

Prajna Khanna, Global Head of Sustainability at Prosus, added: “We are encouraged by DJSI Europe’s recognition of the group with our inclusion in their sustainability index. We will continue to accelerate our efforts to embed sustainability at the heart of all of our businesses across the world.”
