TransAlta has been named to the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index (DJSI NA) for the fourth straight year. This index comprises North American companies that have demonstrated commitment and leadership to sustainable operations.

“As an early contributor to sustainability we’re proud to once again receive this prestigious designation,” said Don Wharton, vice-president, Sustainable Development. “As a company we’ve established a strong record of economic stability, environmental responsibility and community stewardship.”

The DJSI North America selects the top 20 per cent of companies in sustainability performance from the 600 largest companies on the continent. TransAlta is one of 23 Canadian companies named to the index, and the only Canadian company representing the utilities sector.
