Sustainability Indices

Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI)

The DJSI are based on the analysis of corporate economic, environmental and social performance that tackles issues such as corporate governance, risk management, branding, climate change mitigation, supply chain standards and business practices. The purpose is to work with companies that operate in a sustainable and ethical way. The DJSI include general and industry-specific sustainability criteria for each of the 60 industries identified according to the Industry Classification Benchmark (ICB). To be a part of the DJSI, companies are evaluated and selected based on their long-term economic, social and environmental asset management plans. The selection criteria change every year and, to stay in the indexes, companies must make improvements in their long-term sustainability programs. Indexes are updated annually, and companies are monitored throughout the year.

The DJSI closely monitor how companies approach sustainability-related issues that are important for both locally and the globally, such as global warming, biodiversity, efficient use of natural resources, depletion of water resources, occupational health and safety, employment, supply chain management, corporate governance, and well-being.
