4Good is the responsible investment index of the FTSE
Group. It measures the performance of companies that meet globally recognised corporate responsibility standards and facilitates investment in them. It is also the only global responsible investment index that has laid out rigorous criteria regarding the marketing of breast milk substitutes (BMS Criteria).
We are proud to be the first, and so far the only, breast milk substitute manufacturer to be included in FTSE
As part of the BMS
Criteria, our marketing practices of breast milk substitutes are assessed in two higher risk countries every year. An independent, third-party assessment of our marketing practices
in Morocco and Laos by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) confirmed that we meet the FTSE
4Good BMS Criteria. We welcome the FTSE
4Good assessment process as an opportunity to further improve our policies and procedures in this area.
4Good is currently the only independent, transparent, third-party assessment of marketing practices of breast milk substitutes and can serve as an important platform for raising not only our standards, but those of the industry.
