Effective October 6, 2015, Volkswagen AG (VW) will be removed from the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI).
This year, DJSI reviewed about 2,500 companies around the world, selecting only 317 companies to the DJSI World Index. Through the Travelers Institute®, the company’s public policy division, Travelers participates in public policy dialogue on matters of interest to the property casualty insurance sector, as well as to the financial services industry more broadly. DJSI is the longest-running global sustainability benchmark worldwide and the key reference point in sustainability investing for investors and companies alike.
The selection was done on the basis of an exhaustive, rigorous evaluation of Wipro’s sustainability performance on several dimensions spanning economic, environment and social sustainability such as climate change performance, corporate governance, innovation, labour practices and digital inclusion, Wipro said.
S&P Dow Jones Indices and RobecoSAM manage the Dow Jones sustainability indexes, which track the performance of companies that rank the best in their industries in terms of economic, environmental and social criteria.
Volkswagen is also included in London Stock Exchange Group Plc’s FTSE4Good indexes of socially responsible companies. It is known for the quality of its technology, the exceptional standard of its customer service and sustainability initiatives.
