WEG S.A. (B3: WEGE3 / OTC: WEGZY) has been selected for the 6th consecutive time, as component of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI). WEGE3 shares will integrate, from September 23, 2019 onwards, the Dow Jones Sustainability Emerging Markets Index 2019 (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 2019, DJSI considered a universe of 3,500 companies worldwide, including the 800 largest companies in Emerging Markets, among which 97 components were selected. WEG is one of 10 Brazilian companies included in the indices.
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 B3.
