On September 13, NYK was selected for the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI). NYK has been included in the DJSI for many years, which is a major yardstick for socially responsible investment (SRI*); investments in companies whose CSR activities are considered to be upstanding.
The 2012 results of the annual DJSI review have been annouced jointly by S&P Dow Jones Indices LLC, the world's largest, global resource for index-based concepts, data and research, and SAM Sustainable Asset Management AG, a Switzerland-based company that conducts assessments of corporate sustainability.
This year, about 2,500 companies went through the selection process, which is based on an in-depth analysis of economic, environmental and social criteria, such as corporate governance, water-related risks, and stakeholder relations.
NYK, as a good corporate citizen, will continue to take an active role in social issues, including the conservation of the environment, to contribute to the achievement of a better global society.
*Socially Responsible Investment (SRI): investment based on not only a company’s economic performance but also its environmental measures, compliance with laws, and other corporate social responsibility factors as evaluation criteria
