Unicharm Corporation (CEO & President, Mr. Takahisa Takahara) announced that it has been selected as a constituent of all six ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) indices targeting Japanese companies by GPIF (Government Pension Investment Fund).
The six ESG indices selected by the GPIF are the FTSE Blossom Japan Index, the MSCI Japan ESG Select Leaders Index, the S&P/JPX Carbon Efficient Index Series, the FTSE Blossom Japan Sector Relative Index, the MSCI Japan Equity Women's Activity Index (WIN), and the Morningstar Japan ex-REIT Gender Diversity Tilt Index. Unicharm Corporation was selected as a constituent of all six indices.
Unicharm Corporation was selected for the FTSE Blossom Japan Index, MSCI Japan ESG Select Leaders Index, and S&P/JPX Carbon Efficient Index Series for the fifth consecutive year, and the FTSE Blossom Japan Sector Relative Index for the second consecutive year. In addition, the MSCI Japan Equity Women's Index (WIN) was selected for the fourth time. Moreover, it has been selected for the newly adopted Morningstar Japan ex-REIT Gender Diversity Tilt Index.
We believe that this selection was based on our corporate philosophy "NOLA & DOLA "* and our business activities aimed at solving environmental and social issues and contributing to the achievement of the SDGs.
We will use this selection as an opportunity to strive for sustainable growth and the creation of medium- and long-term corporate value to become a company that is even more highly regarded and trusted by our stakeholders.
