Johnson Matthey included in Sustainalytics’ 2024 ESG top-rated companies

Johnson Matthey, a global leader in sustainable technologies, has been recognised as one of the top performing companies rated by Sustainalytics, a leading provider of environmental, social and governance (ESG) research and ratings. JM ranked as one of the top-rated companies in its industry after reducing its ESG risk rating from 22.8 to 20.6, approaching the low-risk threshold of 20.

Sustainalytics’ ESG risk ratings cover more than 14,000 companies across 42 industries. The rating system is designed to help stakeholders such as investors understand which companies are exposed to industry-specific ESG risks, and how well they are reacting to reduce those risks.

Anne Chassagnette, Chief Sustainability Officer, said: “We aim to make sure our ESG disclosures are as open, transparent and easy to understand as possible. We have been working to simplify and standardise our policies, procedures and governance, and make sure they are up to date and accessible via our website and Annual Report.

“Ranking amongst the very best in our industry for ESG risk is welcome news as we continue to make good progress on our path to achieving our sustainability strategy. We look forward to working with Sustainalytics and our other stakeholders to further benchmark and improve our ESG performance and reputation.”
