DJSI member

This prestigious index includes the top performing companies in terms of CSR based on the ratings of the Standard & Poor's SAM non-financial questionnaire.

The Group has also joined DJSI Europe as the second best company in its sector.


Among the assessed criteria, the Group’s commitment and performance in the environmental and economic dimensions, and on governance, are in particular recognized at a very high level. Arkema stands out notably with regards to its climate strategy, environmental footprint reduction, its social and environmental reporting, as well as its risk management.

The composition of Dow Jones sustainability indices is determined once a year on the basis of stringent environmental, social and governance criteria. Only the top 10% of the world's best companies analysed in each sector are included in the DJSI World, while the top 20% of the best companies headquartered in Europe are included in the DJSI Europe. The indices provide some guidance to institutional investors on sustainability-oriented investments (SRI, socially responsible investing).
