K Line's sustainability acknowledged again
Japan-headquartered K Line has once more been included in the Asia Pacific Index of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), one of the leading global indices for ESG investing since 1999. ESG investing describes an investment strategy which takes account of enterprises’ social, ethical and environmental aspects as well as their financial performance.
For K Line, this is 9th consecutive year it has been nominated since 2011. DJSI, jointly operated by S&P Dow Jones Indices LLC of the USA and Robeco SAM AG of Switzerland, measures the performance of companies in terms of economic, environmental and social criteria.
As one of these indices, Asia Pacific Index chooses 148 companies in the Asia-Pacific developed region (including 76 Japanese companies) for its list, based on sustainability assessments of the 600 largest companies in the region. (fd)
