On September 7, POSCO became the first steel company in the world to be selected and recognized for its excellence in sustainability for 13 consecutive years by the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), a global sustainability benchmark.
This year, POSCO was selected as an outstanding company in the global sustainable management indices (DJSI World) from among 23 companies in the steel sector. POSCO received the highest environmental scores (water management and climate change), and excellent grades in shared growth, stakeholder management and sustainability reporting.
