Nestle Malaysia included in Sustainability Emerging Markets IndexEdit
Nestle Malaysia has been included in the 2013 Dow Jones Sustainability Emerging Markets Index (DJSI Emerging Markets), for its commitment to transparency and sustainability practices.
According to Nestle Malaysia Managing Director and Region Head Malaysia/Singapore, Alois Hofbauer, the company’s inclusion in the index is a testimony to its continuous efforts to be more transparent and sustainable, and demonstrates to Nestlé’s stakeholders that it is moving in the right direction.
The DJSI Emerging Markets is designed for investors seeking an emerging-markets index that exhibits a sustainable tilt with minimizing country, industry and size biases relative to traditional emerging-markets benchmarks.
A total of 81 companies participated in the index, which was first calculated in February 2013 by investment specialist RobecoSam and covers the top 10 percent of the largest 800 companies in 20 emerging markets, with Nestle Malaysia being one of the only five Malaysian companies qualified to be included.
It is also the only Malaysian representative among three companies globally in the Food Product category.
