For the first time in 2020, Fast Retailing secured a position on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index. This year, the index ranked retailers and brands like Moncler SpA, Burberry, Hugo Boss, Kering, H&M, Industria de Diseño Textil, SA, Lojas Renner SA, Marui Group Co, Rakuten Inc, Gildan Activewear, Kohl’s Corp, Gap Inc, Wesfarmer, etc. The number of participants on this index increased by18.9 per cent this year from 2019.
Moncler was named a leader based on total sustainability score in 2020. The company was honored with this title for the second consecutive year which proved sustainability to be its strategic asset. Since its launch 21 years ago, the index has also been listing adidas on various top positions. However, this year the brand missed its place on the index. It now plans to analyze the results and increase its score next year.
