NYK was recently selected for the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World), marking the seventh straight year that NYK has been included in this major yardstick for socially responsible investment (SRI), investments in companies whose activities are considered to be upstanding.
The DJSI World was developed jointly by Dow Jones & Company, a U.S.-based publisher of business and financial news and information, and the SAM Group, a Switzerland-based company that conducts assessments of corporate sustainability. The index is one of two leading indexes used by investors concerned with corporate social responsibility criteria. The other major index is the FTSE4Good Global index.
This year, 2,703 companies (377 Japanese companies) went through the selection process, and of these, 317 companies were chosen for the DJSI World, which is based on independent international standards of corporate environmental sustainability and social responsibility. Of the 317 enterprises listed in the current DJSI World, 32 are Japanese companies.
