The Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes were launched in 1999 as the first global sustainability benchmarks. The indexes are offered cooperatively by RobecoSAM and S&P Dow Jones Indices. Each year, they invite the world’s 2,500 largest companies, measured by free-float market capitalization, from the 59 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 the best sustainable practices.
