Dow Jones Sustainability Indices – Annual Review 2020

Dow Jones Sustainability Indices – Annual Review 2020


The results of the annual Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) review have been announced. The Dow Jones Sustainability™ World Index was among the very first set of global indices to track the largest and leading sustainability-driven publicly listed companies. It is comprised of corporate leaders in global sustainability on the basis of their results in the SAM Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA). This year had a record corporate participation in the CSA, up almost 19 % from 2019.

Considering environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria, a sustainability score is assigned to each company. Based on this score, those companies that rank within the top 10 % of their industries are included in the DJSI World. The three largest additions (by free-float market capitalization) to the DJSI World this year are Humana Inc, Ecolab Inc, and Fast Retailing Co Ltd, the three largest deletions are Alphabet Inc, Bank of America Corp, and United Parcel Service Inc.

The 2020 DJSI industry leaders are listed below. These industry leaders are the top performing companies in each of the 61 industries represented in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices as of November 13, 2020.
