The SNAM Sustainability Index
Brother Industries, Ltd. is selected as a member of the SNAM Sustainability Index for the eighth consecutive year
Brother Industries, Ltd. (BIL) was selected as a constituent of "the SNAM Sustainability Index," a unique index of Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Asset Management Co., Ltd. (SNAM). BIL has been selected to join this index for eight straight years since 2012.
"The SNAM Sustainability Index," established in August 2012, selects its constituents by evaluating corporates' ESG (environment, society and governance) based on the environmental assessment provided by Sompo Risk Management & Health Care Inc. and the social and governance assessments by Integrex Inc.
This index is used to manage socially responsible investment (SRI) funds which aim to invest in equities of companies with high ESG scores, such as pension funds and funds for institutional investors.
We consider that BIL's ESG initiatives have continued to earn high recognition by SNAM, and which has led to BIL's eighth consecutive inclusion in this sustainability index since its establishment.
The Brother Group remains committed to gaining further trust from all stakeholders and achieving business growth by promoting global CSR management from a medium-to long-term perspective.
