Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes

External Data Spec Published 19 Mar 2012
The Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes are offered by Dow Jones Indexes in collaboration with SAM. Following a best-in-class approach, the indexes measure the performance of the world's sustainability leaders. Companies are selected for the indexes based on a comprehensive assessment of long-term economic, environmental and social criteria that account for general as well as industry-specific sustainability trends. Only firms that lead their industries based on this assessment are included in the indexes. The indexes are created and maintained according to a systematic methodology, allowing investors to appropriately benchmark sustainability-driven funds and derivatives over the long term. The family includes global and regional broad market indexes, subindexes excluding alcohol, gambling, tobacco, armaments and firearms and/or adult entertainment, and global and regional blue-chip indexes. Listed below are the most widely referenced Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes ℠ .
