Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) is regarded among institutional investors as the leading corporate sustainability rating

Over 2,000 companies round the world in 59 industries were assessed in 2015. Recognizing the value of being recognized by key investors, companies in global business are committed to improving their scores within the index every year. Yet companies from Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore have not prioritized their engagement with the index. Out of 95 Malaysian, Indonesian and Singaporean companies who were invited to participate in 2015, only two of those managed to achieve a place on the top 15% of companies globally. This is a serious matter as global investors concentrate increasingly on governance, environmental and social factors.

It need not be so!

Due diligence and an attentive and purposeful response to the questionnaire can enable companies to achieve a strong position in DJSI and to improve underlying performance.

Our webinar shows you how.

About this Webinar:

This webinar is a platform for invited companies of Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) to understand the disclosure process and get updated on the important changes in the 2016 Questionnaire. Corporate Citizenship, in cooperation with RobecoSAM will touch on techniques on how to answer the Questionnaire effectively in order to make a strong submission within the limited 8-week period.

Some questions we will address:

  • What does it mean for companies who make it on the DJSI Index?
  • How do companies get scored on DJSI?
  • How would we know if we are ready to make a Submission?
  • How can we improve our scores?
