SK Telecom (NYSE: SKM) today announced that it has been listed on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) World for 10 years in a row.


The Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) were jointly launched in 1999 by S&P Dow Jones, the world’s largest financial information service provider, and RobecoSAM, an investment specialist focused exclusively on Sustainability Investing (SI), to evaluate the sustainability performance of the largest 2,500 companies listed on the Dow Jones Global Total Stock Market Index (DJGTSMI). The DJSI covers companies that have ranked in the top 10 percent of DJSI.


Among the world’s major telecom companies, only four companies – SK Telecom, Deutsch Telecom, Telecom Italia, Telus – were included in the DJSI World this year.


This marks the tenth straight year that SK Telecom has been included in the DJSI World.

In addition, it is taking an active part in in the UN Global Compact’s LEAD initiative. The LEAD companies are working to advance corporate sustainability by aligning their strategies and activities with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and contributing their knowledge and experience to the development of resources and tools intended to guide the implementation of SDGs by business.


“SK Telecom is pleased to announce that it has been listed on the DJSI World for ten consecutive years as it recognizes its relentless efforts to advance sustainable management,” said Yoo Young-sang, the Chief Financial Officer of SK Telecom. “Going forward, we will continue to increase the corporate value by not only delivering strong financial results but also promoting a more responsible management.”
