DIC Selected for Inclusion for the first time in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices Asia Pacific Index, a leading benchmark for sustainability initiatives

Tokyo, Japan-DIC Corporation today announced that it had been selected for inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices Asia Pacific Index, a leading benchmark for sustainability initiatives in the Asia–Pacific region and part of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), a global family of indices for socially responsible investment (SRI). This is the first time DIC has been included in DJSI Asia Pacific Index.

 

   

  

DJSI Asia Pacific Index was developed through collaboration between S&P Dow Jones Indices LLC of the United States and RobecoSAM AG of Switzerland. This year, the index assessed the performance of 600 companies in the Asia–Pacific region from the perspective of economic, environmental and social performance, selecting 145 for inclusion in the index, 17 of which are from materials industries. 

A leading global manufacturer of fine chemicals, the DIC Group is committed to reinforcing its sustainability initiatives and providing, in the words of its corporate phrase, “Color & Comfort by Chemistry.” As such, the Group will continue working to contribute to environmental protection and the creation of a society that ensures safety and peace of mind for people everywhere, as well as to deliver the value that its stakeholders—including its customers, suppliers, local communities, shareholders and investors, and employees—expect.
