WEG S.A. (Bovespa: WEGE3 / OTC: WEGZY) has been selected as component of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI). WEGE3 shares will integrate, from September 22, 2014 onwards, the Dow Jones Sustainability Emerging Markets Index (DJSI-EM) portfolio.
DJSI, developed by Dow Jones and the RobecoSAM Group, was the first global index to assess corporate sustainability considering the economic, environmental and social development aspects. In 2014, DJSI considered a universe of 3,395 companies worldwide, including the 800 largest companies in Emerging Markets, among which 86 components were selected. WEG is one of 17 Brazilian companies included in the index.
WEG has a long tradition of sustainable performance and the inclusion in the DJSI-EM is an important recognition of such actions from the capital markets, reinforcing our position as a component of the Brazilian Corporate Sustainability Index (ISE), developed by BM&F Bovespa.
