Epson Named to Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes

Tokyo, Nov 16, 2010 (JCN) - Seiko Epson Corp. has been selected for the third time as a component company of the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) and the Dow Jones Sustainability Asia Pacific Index (DJSI Asia Pacific), both leading indicators for socially responsible investment (SRI). Jointly developed by the American company Dow Jones and Switzerland's SAM (Sustainable Asset Management) Group, the international stock indexes assess companies around the world based on economic, environmental, and social perspectives, and select those with the best future prospects for achieving sustainability.

A review of the component companies is conducted on a yearly basis. Of the roughly 2,500 corporations worldwide, 323 companies were selected to be included in the DJSI World. Epson was one of seven that were selected for the computer hardware and electronic office equipment category of the technology sector. In addition, Epson retained its position in the DJSI Asia Pacific, which was launched in March 2009 and is made up of the top 20 percent in terms of the SAM analysis out of the largest 600 companies in the developed Asia-Pacific markets.
