The DJSI are float-adjusted market capitalisation weighted indices that measure the performance of companies selected with ESG criteria. Only the top ranked companies within each industry are included in the indices.
The index represents the top 10 per cent of the largest 2500 companies in the S&P Global Broad Market Index based on long-term economic and ESG factors.
