The Dow Jones Sustainability World Index follows a best-in-class approach and highlights the sustainability leaders from industries on a global level. The annual review of the DJSI family is based on a thorough analysis of corporate economic, environmental, and social performance, and assesses issues such as corporate governance, risk management, branding, climate change, supply chain standards, and labor practices. Half of the assessment focuses on measuring general sustainability criteria, and half relates on industry-specific sustainability issues.

The results of the annual review will influence the investment decisions of asset managers in 15 countries who have licensed the DJSI family.
