STOCKHOLM -- September 13, 2013

Atlas Copco (STO:ATCOA)(STO:ATCOB), a leading provider of sustainable
productivity solutions, was included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for
2013/2014. The index lists the world’s leading sustainability-driven
companies.

The index annually assesses and compares companies on their sustainability
work. The index has analyzed the companies on factors such as the extent to
which long-term economic, environmental and social aspects have played a role
in shaping strategy. Other factors include meeting shareholders’ demands for
sound financial returns and transparent financial accounting, and setting the
highest standards of corporate governance and stakeholder engagement.

It is the third year in a row that DJSI has selected Atlas Copco for
inclusion.

“We are very proud to once again be included in the Dow Jones Sustainability
Index,” said Mala Chakraborti, Atlas Copco’s Vice President Corporate
Responsibility. “It highlights the hard work we do to be highly productive in
a sustainable way.”

sustainable companies in the Global 100 list presented at the World Economic
Forum, as well as ranked one of the most ethical companies by Ethisphere
Institute. Atlas Copco was also named a “Leader” by the FTSE4Good index on
environmental, social and governance practices, and was included in business
magazine Forbes’s list of the world’s 100 most innovative companies.
