For the third consecutive time, WEG had the WEGE3 shares, selected to compose, from September 19, 2015, in the Dow Jones Sustainability Emerging Markets Index (DJSI-MS).

The DJSI is the gold standard for corporate sustainability, and the first global index to track the leading sustainability-driven companies based on RobecoSAM’s analysis of financially relevant Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors.

In 2016, RobecoSAM invited 3,400 of the world’s largest companies, including 800 from developed and emerging markets to take part in its annual Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA).

WEG is one of 13 Brazilian companies included in the index.

Historically, WEG has a long tradition of sustainable operation and the fact of keeping WEGE3 shares in DJSI-EM is another important recognition from capital market. You may check the entire component list for the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) here
