Delta Electronics announced it has been named to two of the prestigious 2011 Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes – the DJSI World Index and the DJSI Asia/ Pacific Index. Delta states that it was also first in its industry in several of the index categories. According to Delta, selection to become a member of the DJSI is high international recognition for Delta’s continued commitment to corporate social responsibility and sustainability.
The Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes were launched in 1999 as the first global sustainability benchmarks. The indexes are offered cooperatively by SAM Indexes and Dow Jones Indexes. Each year, they invite the world’s 2,500 largest companies, measured by free-float market capitalization, from the 57 sectors to report on their sustainability performance. The result of the Corporate Sustainability Assessment provides an in-depth analysis of economic, environmental and social criteria. The indexes serve as benchmarks for investors who integrate sustainability considerations into their portfolios, and provide an effective engagement platform for companies who want to adopt sustainable best practices.
