Inclusion on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) can offer real value but require significant investment of time and resources, leading many potential applicants to ask:

Is the time investment worthwhile for my company?
How likely are we to succeed?
What are the benefits of appearing on the DJSI? Is there value in applying even if we aren’t accepted?
Are there efficiencies that can simplify the onerous application process?

At Framework LLC, we are experts in sustainability disclosure and strategy who have helped leading companies such as Coca-Cola, NVDIA, and MetLife increase the efficiency and impact of their efforts—and supported clients in becoming listed on the DJSI.

Please join us for an online panel conversation featuring two respected sustainability professionals who have gotten their companies listed on the DJSI to hear perspectives on these topics and ask your own questions.

The Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) began as one global index in 1999, comprising the top-ranked companies from each industry based on environmental, social, and governance criteria.

Fatema loves cooking and introducing her new neighbors to Syrian food, and aspires to enter a health-related profession.

Framework is pleased to support Sanctuary Kitchen, a program of CitySeed developed in partnership with a team of community volunteers. The organization’s aim is to improve cultural understanding and appreciation while creating income opportunities for the cooks. They host cooking classes, food demonstration, and supper clubs led… More >
