Updating the Resource Centre Digital Platform

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre is at a critical point in its development. Our digital platform is home to a wealth of information on business and human rights, but hasn’t had a visual refresh for a number of years.

We will soon be updating the site to improve its usability and better serve the thousands of people that use our site to support their work.

Please take an advance peek at our new look, and let us know what you think!

Thank you,
Alex Guy, Digital Officer

DJSI releases SRI index review

Author: Environmental Finance, Published on: 6 September 2006

SAM Group has completed its annual review of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI). The DJSI World Index, which tracks the most sustainable 10% of the 2,500 biggest companies in the world, saw 46 companies added and 36 removed. Meanwhile, 26 firms were added and 16 dropped from the European benchmark index, the 162-member DJSI STOXX. A further 17 companies have been added and 13 removed from the 112-member DJSI North America. Notable companies that have been cut from the DJSI World include Colgate-Palmolive, Motorola and Hitachi. Alexander Barkawi, managing director of SAM Indexes, said: "Due to the research process that we go through, we can't actually point to specific reasons why a specific company goes in or comes out." But he added: "Most of the deletions fell out because their peers have progressed faster than they did."
