22 September 2015

Teijin has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Asia/Pacific Index (DJSI Asia/Pacific), a global benchmark for socially responsible investing, for the seventh consecutive year.

DJSI, which was jointly introduced in 1999 by Dow Jones and Swiss-based RobecoSAM, researches and evaluates socially responsible investment and is a leading index of sustainability. Every year, the index assesses the economic, environmental and social performance of some 2,500 companies to identify those that demonstrate sustainability leadership.

Teijin explains that it was named one of six Japanese companies among the nine firms in the DJSI Asia/Pacific’s Chemical Industry. In total, 145 companies out of 600 were selected for this year's index.

Teijin is also included in other international SRI indexes, such as the FTSE4Good Index and the ETHIBEL Investment Register. Teijin appreciates the continued recognition of its leadership in sustainability through responsible industrial development befitting customers, society and the environment, as well as shareholders.
