Ricardo’s environmental, social and governance practices achieve FTSE4Good Index status

Ricardo is pleased to announce today its inclusion in the FTSE4Good Index – the pioneering global responsible investment index, designed to identify companies that demonstrate strong environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices.

The globally recognised FTSE4Good Index Series has been running for fifteen years, and is a benchmark for companies meeting global corporate responsibility standards. Transparent management and the clearly-defined ESG criteria – which Ricardo demonstrably meets through its inclusion – have made the index a valuable tool for investors in assessing responsible investment products, and especially as a means of identifying environmentally and socially responsible companies.

“I am delighted that Ricardo plc has been included in the FTSE4Good Index,” commented Ricardo CEO Dave Shemmans. “Ricardo people care passionately about solving the most challenging issues facing nations and business around the world, from mitigating the effects of global warming, to ensuring the most efficient use of scarce resources in transport and power, and working towards clean technologies that offer a more healthy and sustainable environment for the towns and cities of the future. Ricardo’s inclusion in the FTSE4Good Index is an achievement that bears testament to the strides we have taken as a global concern in developing the very highest standards in environmental, social and governance practices across all of the markets, sectors and business areas that we serve.”
