Yokogawa Electric Corporation has been chosen as a component of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) Asia Pacific Index, one of the world’s most renowned indices for ESG (environmental, social, and governance).
This is the tenth time that Yokogawa Electric has been selected for this DJSI index and the fifth year in a row.
Yokogawa has set its “Three goals” as a vision for society in the year 2050 and identified priority sustainability issues that it will work to address through the achievement of short-, medium-, and long-term targets.
The company will continue working to create a sustainable society in keeping with its corporate philosophy and the recently formulated Yokogawa Purpose, which states: “Utilizing our ability to measure and connect, we fulfill our responsibilities for the future of our planet.”
The DJSI index was created by S&P Dow Jones Indices, a US company that focuses on sustainability investing.
These indices assess the business results of approximately 3,500 major companies around the world based on financial, environmental, and social criteria, and only those companies deemed to be making a significant contribution to the achievement of a sustainable society are selected.
In 2021, 153 companies (including 77 Japanese companies) were selected for the DJSI Asia Pacific Index.
