SK innovation SK innovation Included in the DJSI World for the First Time in Its History

09/11/2017

- Its global level of sustainable management capability has been recognized
- Included in the DJSI World determined by a globally renowned institution
- “Business practices for a harmony with society and happiness of stakeholders, based on global level of transparency” 




SK innovation announced that the company has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) World.  


SK innovation made a splendid achievement to be listed on the DJSI World for the first time in its history. 


The significance of this inclusion to the DJSI World lies in that SK innovation’s sustainable business practices have been recognized by a globally renowned institution.  


In particular, because of stringent entry barriers of the oil and gas (refining + marketing) sector under which SK innovation is listed, global major companies are not able to be included in the DJSI World.


Total of 320 global companies, only 12,7%, among global top 2,528 companies as of total market value were able to be included in the DJSI World index for 2017. In Korea, 23 companies including SK innovation were listed to the DJSI World for 2017.   


To secure DJSI World’s level of sustainable business practices, SK innovation had constructed total control system covering economy, society, and environment, and made efforts to emerge as a global company by compensating defects of each sector for many years.


An official of SK innovation said, “As the company executed sustainable business practices for social harmony and stakeholders’ happiness basing on global level of management transparency, SK innovation was able to be included in the DJSI World. The company will continue sustainable business practices through Deep Change 2.0, which is to contribute to happy lives of stakeholders.”  


Meanwhile, globally renowned DJSI is determined by US’ financial information company S&P Dow Jones Index and Switzerland’s investment analysis specialist RobecoSAM. These two companies assess 2,528 companies’ annual corporate sustainability related with environmental, social, and governance sector.
