The DJSI is a leading corporate social responsibility index developed jointly by Dow Jones of the United States and Sustainability Asset Management (SAM) Group, a Swiss research and rating company. The selection of a company to the DJSI is based on a wide ranging analysis of economic, environmental, and social criteria. In 2010, 600 major companies in the Asia Pacific were surveyed for the DJSI Asia Pacific, and of this total 143 companies were selected, including 73 Japanese companies. For the DJSI World Enlarged index, which was launched in November, 2,500 major companies around the world were surveyed and a total of 513 companies were selected.

Individually, we aim to combine good citizenship with the courage to innovate.”
