Dow Jones Sustainability Index
Launched in 1999, the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes are the first global indexes tracking the financial performance of the leading sustainability-driven companies worldwide. The Index's annual review is based on a thorough analysis of corporate economic, environmental and social performance, assessing issues such as corporate governance, risk management, branding, climate change mitigation, supply chain standards and labor practices. It’s the fifteenth time
, and the sixth consecutive year, that Dow has received this recognition. Dow was one of only 10 chemical companies to be recognized in the World Index.
