Responding to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) can be a lengthy process. Addressing the breadth of economic, social and environmental issues covered requires the participation of subject matter experts from across your organization. For some companies, the investment of time and resources may have their leadership team asking, “Is it worth it?” For 2016, 3,450 companies are invited to participate in the DJSI Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) globally. What many companies may not realize is that regardless whether you choose to respond, all invited companies are rated.
To find out whether your company is invited to participate, review the 2016 invitees available through the DJSI website. For some companies, the first hurdle is receiving the invitation. Perhaps your company chose to forgo responding. If not, it may be that RobecoSAM does not have an appropriate contact to initiate the process with your company.
