Danske selskaber ude af The Dow Jones Sustainability World Index

    I sidste måned opdaterede RobecoSam det prestigefyldte bæredygtige aktieindeks – Dow Jones Sustainable World Index. Nærlæser man opdateringen finder man ikke længere dansk repræsentation. Danske selskaber som ISS, Novo Nordisk, Novozymes og Coloplast har ellers tidligere været repræsenteret, men er nu helt ude af indekset, der var det første bæredygtige indeks ved etableringen i 1999.

    RobecoSam skriver om årets opdatering, at “S&P Dow Jones Indices (S&P DJI), one of the world’s leading index providers, together with SAM, the business unit within RobecoSAM, which specializes in providing Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) data, ratings, and benchmarking, has today announced the results of the annual Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) review. At the same time, this year marks the 20th anniversary of the DJSI World as the global standard for measuring and advancing corporate ESG practices.

    The three largest (by free-float market capitalization) additions to and deletions from the DJSI World this year are:

    Additions: Alphabet Inc, CVS Health Corp, Reckitt Benckiser Group PLC

    Deletions: Citigroup Inc1, Royal Dutch Shell PLC, 3M Co
