NYK Included in DJSI for 11th Consecutive Year
September 18, 2013
On September 12, NYK was selected for the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI)* for an 11th straight year. And NYK will be included in DJSI World for 2013/2014. The DJSI is a major yardstick for those engaging in socially responsible investment (SRI),** investments in companies whose CSR activities are considered to be upstanding.
The DJSI recognition is based on an in-depth analysis of economic, environmental, and social criteria, such as corporate governance, water-related risks, and stakeholder relations.
This year, over 3,000 companies, including about 300 Japanese companies, participated in the selection process, and 333 of those companies, comprising 21 Japanese companies, were eventually selected to be a part of the World Index.
Like the FTSE4Good Index, which also includes NYK, the DJSI includes only companies that have gone through a rigid evaluative process, which is an important selection standard for investors who take an interest in corporate socially responsibility and sustainability.
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.
* Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI): The results of the annual DJSI review are announced 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.
**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.
