Casio Selected for Inclusion in DJSI Asia Pacific
Casio Computer Co., Ltd., has been selected for inclusion in the Asia Pacific version of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI), the DJSI Asia Pacific, for fiscal 2011-2012.
The DJSI indexes were established by the US company Dow Jones Indexes and the Swiss company Sustainability Asset Management (SAM) in 1999, becoming the world’s first stock price indexes focused on socially responsible investment (SRI). They evaluate companies on economic, environmental and social criteria from the perspective of sustainability.
The DJSI Asia Pacific is an SRI index that was established in January 2009 for companies in Japan, Asia, and Oceania. Reviews are conducted every September. This year, 156 of the 600 leading companies in this region (79 Japanese companies) were selected for inclusion.
Casio has also been included in the Morningstar Socially Responsible Investment Index (MS-SRI), which was the first SRI index in Japan, since September 2004.
