JCDecaux joins the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, the benchmark index for socially-responsible companies

Paris, 14 September 2016 – JCDecaux SA (Euronext Paris: DEC), the number one outdoor advertising company worldwide, announces that following an evaluation by RobecoSAM (a company specialising in sustainable investing) and in partnership with S&P Dow Jones Indices (one of the largest providers of stock indices in the world), the Group has been included among the 24 European companies joining the Dow Jones Sustainability Europe Index on 19 September 2016.

Launched in 1999, the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices are the longest-running indices in the world, evaluating the performance of leading companies in the area of sustainable development. The only company from the media sector joining the Dow Jones Sustainability Europe Index this year, JCDecaux will be among 154 companies included within its ranking (including 31 French companies), based on sustainable development criteria with financial implications in the economic, environmental and social spheres.

This inclusion recognises the commitments, transparency and performance of JCDecaux since the 2014 launch of its Sustainable Development Strategy in France and all of its subsidiaries around the world, which focuses on six key pillars:

- Reducing energy consumption
- Reducing other environmental impacts
- Deploying a Group Health & Safety Policy
- Implementing an ambitious Employee Relations Policy across the Group
- Strengthening sustainable development in the Purchasing Policy
- Promoting engagement toward sustainable development among the Group's employees

For more than 50 years, the pursuit of socially responsible and environmentally-friendly growth has been central to JCDecaux's business model of servicing cities, transport companies and citizens on a daily basis through innovative solutions that incorporate sustainable development. This is delivered through a variety of initiatives, including self-service bicycles, automated public toilets and intelligent street furniture.

Jean-Charles Decaux, Chairman of the Executive Board and co-CEO of JCDecaux, said: “We are pleased to be included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Europe Index and to earn recognition of JCDecaux's commitment to being a socially-responsible company, less than one year after joining the prestigious FTSE4Good Index. It symbolises the recognition of our ambitious Sustainable Development Strategy, which was formalised in 2014 but has been at the heart of our business model and innovation and growth policy since 1964, as well as the sustained and continuous efforts of all of our teams in terms of environmental, social and societal responsibility.
