DJSI Chile, the First Local Sustainability Index

Sustainability indeces make possible to identify companies with good overall performance in environmental, social and corporate governance matters. They also provide financial incentive for incorporating sustainable and socially responsible processes at companies that take part in the market and create an environment of responsible investment consistent with society's demands. The addition of a sustainability index to Santiago Exchange's current family of indeces is an important milestone in the modernization and international expansion of our market indicators, adoption of international standards and compliance with the high demands of the stock market.
