Standing up
How we rate In 2003 we participated in a range of industry wide performance surveys.

Dow Jones rated Pearson as media sector leader for the second year in both the DJSI World Index for corporate sustainability and the DJSI STOXX index of European sustainable investments. EIRIS (the Ethical Investment Research Service) considered that our environmental policy and management systems were good but felt that further improvement in our performance and reporting was possible. We will address this in 2004. Pearson was recognised as a Top 100 company in the Business in Community CR Index.

Pearson submitted a Communication on Progress to the UN. This annual report describes our performance against the nine principles that form the Global Compact.
