In a statement on Monday, the world’s largest manufacturer of gloves said that within the healthcare equipment and supplies industry on the DJSI, the company secured a top decile position, ranking within the top 3% among industry peers.
It said this achievement displays Top Glove’s commitment to sustainable corporate governance, supply chain management, innovation, environmental reporting, climate strategy, human rights, human capital development, and customer relationship management, all of which are key criteria assessed by the DJSI.
