BANGKOK, Nov. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Delta Electronics (Thailand) PCL. qualified as a constituent of the world-renowned Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI). Delta Thailand is the only Thailand company in the “ITC Electronic Equipment, Instruments & Components” industry segment in the 2021 DJSI index and is in both DJSI World and DJSI Emerging Markets region/country lists.
The DJSI are float-adjusted market capitalization weighted indices that measure the performance of companies selected using environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria. The DJSI World applies a transparent, rules-based constituent selection process based on the companies’ S&P Global ESG Score resulting from the annual S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA).
S&P Dow Jones Indices, the world’s leading index provider, conducts the CSA, which comprises a rigorous questionnaire assessing both public and non-public data submitted by participating companies. This year, over 10,000 publicly traded companies were invited to participate in the S&P Global CSA. Delta Thailand joins the DJSI index for the first time this year after two consecutive years of S&P Global Silver Class Awards.
Mr. Jackie Tsai-Hsing Chang, Delta Electronics Thailand President: “Delta Thailand is honored to join the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices. This excellent news shows the global recognition of our company’s value and ESG performance. For over 30 years in Thailand, Delta has focused on our mission to satisfy our global customers with energy-efficient innovation while pioneering sustainable growth, responsible business and global citizenship.
