Gilead Named to Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for Third Consecutive Year

FOSTER CITY, Calif. , December 11 /Businesswire/ - Gilead Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: GILD) today announced the company has once again been recognized as one of the most sustainable pharmaceutical companies according to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) for the third consecutive year. The company was also included on the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index (DJSI North America). These rankings are based on an in-depth analysis of Gilead’s sustainability performance and highlight the company’s longstanding sustainable business practices and transparency on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.

“We are very pleased that Gilead’s commitment to corporate responsibility is recognized once again with inclusion on the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index,” said Daniel O’Day, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Gilead Sciences. “By investing in world-class science, driving access to our therapies and addressing societal barriers to care, Gilead’s work is helping to create a healthier world for all people.”

Gilead’s ESG strategy aims to position the company as an employer of choice that delivers shareholder value in a sustainable, responsible manner. Gilead’s focus on scientific innovation and sustainable business practices is centered around the needs of patients, employees and communities around the world. Examples of Gilead’s commitment to ESG include:

  • Expanding health equity around the world through programs that promote health system sustainability, strengthen infrastructure and provide education and financial support
  • Increasing access to medicines in low- and lower-middle income countries, including voluntary licensing for Gilead’s HIV, hepatitis C and COVID-19 treatments
  • Creating an inclusive workplace that is representative of the diverse communities the company serves
  • Continuing to evolve the company’s environmental sustainability program and setting ambitious goals that further embed sustainability into the business across four focus areas of carbon, water, waste and product

The DJSI World applies a transparent, rules-based constituent selection process based on the companies’ S&P Global ESG Score resulting from the annual S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA). The CSA consists of a rigorous questionnaire assessing both public and non-public data submitted by participating companies.

DJSI North America comprises North American sustainability leaders as identified by S&P Global through the CSA. It represents the top 20% of the largest 600 North American companies in the S&P Global BMI based on long-term economic, environmental and social criteria.

Details on Gilead’s ESG commitments, goals and progress can be found in the company’s Environmental Social Governance Impact Report, which is based on internationally recognized guidelines from the Global Reporting Initiative, the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board, the Taskforce on Climate Related Financial Disclosures and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
