Teijin Awarded Bronze Class in SAM Sustainability Yearbook 2012

14 February 2012

Teijin has been named to the Bronze Class of The Sustainability Yearbook, a corporate-sustainability publication issued by the Swiss-based SAM Group.

According to Teijin, the world's 2,500 largest companies in the Dow Jones Global Total Stock Market Index are invited to participate in SAM's Corporate Sustainability Assessment each year. They say the Yearbook lists only the top 15% of the companies in terms of economic, environmental and social performance in each of 58 industrial sectors.

The 433 companies listed this year were ranked in three classes – Gold, Silver and Bronze – along with separate awards to sector leaders and sector movers. The Yearbook’s chemical sector listed 17 companies out of the 57 companies assessed by SAM, among which were three in the Gold Class, three in the Silver Class and two including Teijin in the Bronze Class. Teijin say they are the only Japanese company listed in The Yearbook’s chemical sector this year.

Teijin explain that they are also listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index and the Dow Jones Sustainability Asia Pacific Index, and other socially responsible investing indexes such as the FTSE4Good Index and the Ethibel Sustainability Index.
