Solutia Inc., St. Louis, has been included in the newly formed Dow Jones Sustainability Group Indexes (DJSGI), a global equity index tracking the performance of the leading sustainability-driven companies.The DJSGI was formed to address increasing investor interest in companies committed to corporate sustainability principles, including innovative technology, corporate governance, shareholder relations, industrial leadership and social well-being. Solutia was selected after providing data on sustainability performance to the DJSGI. Companies selected scored in the top 10 percent of their industry group.The DJSGI corporate sustainability assessment has been carefully designed to ensure that the indexes are global, rational, consistent and flexible to provide financial quantification of corporate sustainability performance, said Alois Flatz, head of sustainability research for Zurich-based SAM Sustainability Group.
