Beko Appliance Partners’ parent company, Arçelik, secures inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index

5th December 2023

We are proud to announce that our parent company, Arçelik, have received the highest CSA score in their sector in the 2023 S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) for the 5th consecutive year.

Arçelik is once again the highest scoring of the 46 companies assessed in the CSA in the DHP Household Durables Category. Arçelik received a score of 86/100 in the assessment, earning the company a listing in the highly coveted Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI).

The CSA is an independent evaluation of some of the world’s largest companies, assessing their sustainability performance and their environmental, social and governance (ESG) efforts. Performance in the CSA is then used to determine inclusion in the DJSI, that serves as a shortlist of the highest-scoring companies in the ESG criteria based on a number of global, regional and country benchmarks. Arçelik has featured in the DJSI since 2017.

This is the fifth year that Arçelik’s outstanding CSA Performance has secured the company the top spot in the DJSI, a reflection of our parent company’s commitment to taking steps to help create a more sustainable future. The recognition follows the 2023 United Nations Global Assembly Conference (UNGA), where Arçelik joined the Forward Faster initiative to support the acceleration of 2030 goals. In line with these commitments, Arçelik is aiming to become a net-zero company by 2050, taking a more ambitious step to set long-term targets according to the Science Based Target Initiative (STBi) and 1.5-degree scenario.

At Beko Appliance Partners, we continually take inspiration from our parent company’s example while on our own sustainability journey. From specifyingproducts with higher energy-efficiency ratings, to working on improving efficiency across our local operations, we are committed to reducing the carbon footprint for ourselves and our partners whilst aspiring to encourage sustainable lifestyles.

While discussing Arçelik’s consistent inclusion in the DJSI, CEO Hakan Bulgurlu said; “It is a privilege to have achieved the highest score on the DJSI for the fifth consecutive year – this recognition is a significant accolade for our business. Arçelik’s efforts towards building a more sustainable future, not only for our company but also for our customers, are consistently evolving. Sustainability is deeply ingrained in every aspect of Arçelik’s value chain.

“Our actions are aimed at creating a positive domino effect; it’s about encouraging consumers to make more sustainable purchasing decisions and to incorporate habitual changes into their daily lives. Together, these changes will help shape the future of our planet, society, and health for the better. I am excited about what lies ahead, fuelled by our company’s successes to date, with an everlasting passion to deliver even more positive changes for the future, including fulfilling our science-based targets to reduce our Scope 1, 2, and 3 GHG emissions.”

With an impressive ESG score and ongoing commitment to sustainability, Arçelik continues to inspire other companies to prioritise environmental responsibility, social impact and good governance practices. By setting high standards and leading by example, Arçelik is continually making a significant contribution towards building a more sustainable future for all.
