SWORDS, Ireland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 8, 2018--For the fourth consecutive year, Ingersoll Rand (NYSE:IR), a world leader in creating comfortable, sustainable and efficient environments, has been named to the FTSE4Good Index Series that measures the performance of companies demonstrating strong environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices.
The index series is a leading benchmark for socially responsible investment and further demonstrates Ingersoll Rand’s commitment to ethical and responsible practices that promote environmental stewardship, human rights and corporate governance.
“At Ingersoll Rand, our business strategy is centered on addressing important global trends like climate change, urbanization and resource scarcity that increasingly affect the way we live, move and work,” said Michael W.
