NYK Selected for DJSI for 12th Consecutive Year

September 25, 2014

NYK has been selected for the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI)* for a 12th straight year. 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 is composed of select sustainability-driven companies from over 3,000 companies invited to participate in a selection process consisting of an in-depth analysis of economic, environmental, and social criteria, such as corporate governance, risk management, water-related risks, and stakeholder relations.
Like the FTSE4Good Index, which also includes NYK, the DJSI is an important selection standard for investors who make a point of corporate social 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.
