TUI Group as the only tourism group to be featured in Dow Jones Sustainability Index

TUI Group is listed in the renowned Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for the eleventh year running. Moreover, TUI is the only tourism group to feature in the World and Europe Indices. TUI Group has also been recognized as industry leader. At the annual review of the composition of the index, the Company received top scores in various categories including Corporate Citizenship, Climate Strategy, and Eco-Efficiency.

The Dow Jones Sustainabilty Index (DJSI) is a renowned seal of approval. Therefore it follows a Best-in-Class-approach: all the industry’s best are included, that score well within the sustainability criteria.

“As the world’s leading tourism business, TUI recognizes that the tourism sector shares responsibility for sustainable development and we actively engage in many ways to support this. We see the societal and economic potential of tourism to benefit people throughout the world. Being listed again is an acknowledgment of our work.”, said Thomas Ellerbeck, member of TUI Group’s Executive Committee and Group Director Corporate & Public Affairs, whose responsibilities include the Group’s sustainability programmes around the world.

Last year TUI Group presented its sustainability strategy for the next five years. Under the title “Better Holidays, Better World” the company’s sustainability efforts include the three big areas of activity: „step lightly“, „make a difference“ and „lead the way“.
