Outokumpu maintains its membership in the Dow Jones World and Dow
Jones STOXX Sustainability indexes. This year Outokumpu also received
the highest possible score in two sustainability criteria:
environmental reporting as well as occupational health and safety.

SAM, the investment company focused exclusively on sustainability
investing together with Dow Jones Indexes and STOXX Ltd, two leading
global index providers, have informed the results of the 2009 annual
review for the Dow Jones Sustainability and Dow Jones STOXX
Sustainability indexes.

The DJSI follow a best-in-class approach and include sustainability
leaders from each industry on a global and regional level
respectively. The annual review of the DJSI family is based on a
thorough analysis of corporate economic, environmental and social
performance, assessing issues such as corporate governance, risk
management, branding, climate change mitigation, supply chain
standards and labor practices. It accounts for general as well as
industry specific sustainability criteria. After deletions and
additions based on the 2009 review the number of companies in the
pan-European Dow Jones STOXX Sustainability index will be 156 and 317
in the Dow Jones Sustainability World index (DJSI World).

"Even in these challenging times we are committed to act responsibly,
and aim to continuously improve our performance. I'm pleased to
receive again recognition for our efforts in this area. Membership in
Dow Jones Sustainability indexes is important," says Outokumpu's CEO
Juha Rantanen.
