RobecoSAM recently awarded Abbott with a Gold Class Sustainability Award for excellent corporate sustainability performance in its annual Sustainability Yearbook, the world's most comprehensive publication on corporate sustainability. The award recognizes Abbott for promoting responsible business practices in its own operations and throughout its supply chain, with a focus on business ethics, environmental stewardship and development of human capital.

Every year since 2004, The Sustainability Yearbook has listed the world’s most sustainable companies in each industry, highlighting why impact evaluation is important to both companies and investors.  To read the full yearbook, visit Yearbook/

RobecoSAM also publishes the annual Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), one of the most prestigious global benchmarks for corporate sustainability and responsibility.
