Teijin Limited announced that for the third consecutive year it has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World), a global indicator for Social Responsible Investment (SRI), effective September 19.

Teijin is the only Japanese company among the 10 included in the chemical sector. A total of 342 companies were selected for this year's index.

The DJSI World, which was jointly developed by Dow Jones and Swiss-based SAM Group in 1999, is the leading sustainability index. It represents the top 10 percent of the largest 2,500 companies in each industry of the Dow Jones Global Index. Each year, the index assesses the economic, environmental and social performance of companies to identify those that demonstrate sustainability leadership.

Teijin also has been named to Dow Jones Sustainability Asia Pacific Index for three consecutive years, and is included in international SRI indexes such as the FTSE4Good Index and the Ethibel Sustainability Index.

Osamu Nishikawa, Chief Social Responsibility Officer and Senior Executive Officer of Teijin Limited, said: “We are honored that the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index has recognized our socially responsible investment practices over the past three years. The Teijin Group is deeply committed to making meaningful contributions to society, including by meeting the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility.”
