Prologis Named to 2015 Dow Jones Sustainability Indices
For the fifth consecutive year, Prologis will be included in the 2015 Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI). The indices track the leading sustainability-driven companies worldwide based on RobecoSAM’s analysis of financially material economic, environmental and social factors. Prologis is included in both the North America and Asia Pacific indices.
David Blitzer, Managing Director and Chairman of the Index Committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices, said, “More and more investors look at companies’ environmental policies and track records in making their investment decisions. The Dow Jones Sustainability Indices are comprehensive benchmarks that allow investors to gauge the collective performance of those companies that meet the RobecoSAM standard for corporate sustainability and to formulate global allocations consistent with sustainable investment standards and practices.”
According to Robert Dornau, Senior Manager, Sustainability Services, RobecoSAM, “Companies with strong sustainability scores perform above the portfolio benchmark and can attract a higher-quality, longer-term investor versus the quick in and out investor, stabilizing and growing stock prices. An integrated approach to company valuation considering both financial and non-financial criteria leads to a better-informed investment decision.”
