Sysmex Corporation has been selected for inclusion in the FTSE Blossom Japan Index, the MSCI Japan ESG Select Leaders Index and the MSCI Japan Empowering Women Index (WIN). This year we have been selected for inclusion in the FTSE Blossom Japan Index and the MSCI Japan ESG Select Leaders Index for the third consecutive year.
The FTSE Blossom Japan Index was developed by FTSE Russell and selects highly sustainable companies from three perspectives: governance, the environment, and society. It uses the globally established FTSE4Good Index Inclusion Rules which are drawn from existing international standards including the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The MSCI Japan ESG Select Leaders Index and the MSCI Japan Empowering Women Index (WIN) were created by MCSI Inc. (Morgan Stanley Capital International), part of the U.S. Morgan Stanley Group. The indexes select companies with relatively high ESG ratings in individual sectors from among the top 500 Japanese stocks by market capitalization. The WIN index in particular selects companies that excel in gender diversity.
GPIF selected these indexes as benchmarks of their passive investment strategy.>>
