Viña Concha y Toro has formed part of the Dow Jones Sustainability Chile Index (DJSI Chile), the country’s leading sustainability index developed by the New York Stock Exchange and S&P Dow Jones Indices, since 2019. This is a global sustainability indicator in which only the leading companies in each sector are asked to participate. Due to its market capitalization, Viña Concha y Toro was invited to form part of the DJSI MILA and DJSI Chile indices, and is the only wine company in Chile and globally to participate in this category, which is highly competitive and one of the industries with the highest performance in the evaluation.
This achievement has been made possible thanks to the involvement of various areas of the company, noted Valentina Lira, Viña Concha y Toro’s Sustainable Development Assistant Manager. “As a company, we are convinced that the challenge of growth must be approached in a responsible and balanced way, with all dimensions of Sustainability moving forward together. It is very gratifying to see that the efforts that the company has made over the years, today are visible in scale indices as relevant as Dow Jones,” she added.
