Another win for sustainability
Every year more companies see the value of disclosing their sustainability performance to capital markets via active participation in the Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA).
This year 13,800 companies were invited to complete the CSA. Of those, 3,519 companies were eligible for selection into a Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI). A record number of 1,728 DJSI eligible companies actively participated, an increase of 9% over last year in this group.
Of all invited companies, 2,480 have already submitted, representing over 48% of global market capitalization, relative to the S&P Global Broad Market Index (BMI), up from 45% in 2021. The assessment is still ongoing until end of January 2023.
Participating companies can choose the degree to which they permit S&P Global to share underlying datapoints submitted in the CSA that are supplemental to the company’s public reporting. The majority of participating companies took advantage of this option to leverage S&P Global’s platforms to communicate this information to a wider capital market audience. To inform the growing number of ESG-focused investors about corporate sustainability performance, updated ESG Scores are accessible on the S&P Global Capital IQ Pro platform and on the S&P Global Sustainable1 website.
The below presentation allows you to drill into the 2022 DJSI membership.
