External Evaluation

The Daicel Group received the following external evaluation (as of March 31, 2018).

MSCI Japan ESG Select Leaders Index

The MSCI Japan ESG Select Leaders Index is determined by MSCI, with constituents chosen from the MSCI Japan IMI Top 500. The selection is undertaken by sector and focuses on corporations that scored high in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance relative to their peers.

MSCI Japan Empowering Women Index (WIN)

The MSCI Japan Empowering Women Index (WIN) is selected by MSCI after calculating the gender diversity scores of each corporation included in the MSCI Japan IMI Top 500. This is calculated from multilateral perspectives based on female employment data disclosed in accordance with Japan’s Act on Promotion of Women’s Participation and Advancement in the Workplace. The WIN thus only includes corporations with outstanding performance in terms of gender diversity in each business sector.

Under “Certified Health & Productivity Management Outstanding Organizations Recognition Program” co-sponsored by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and Nippon Kenko Kaigi, the “White 500” are selected from major domestic corporations boasting outstanding track records of practicing robust health management in partnership with health insurance associations.
