Epson has been selected for inclusion in FTSE4Good Index Series, a responsible investment (RI) index of FTSE Russell, a London Stock Exchange Group company, in recognition of its environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives that contribute to social sustainability.
Epson aspires to achieve sustainability and enrich communities over the long-term. The company sees its inclusion in this index as objective evidence that its efforts to address environmental and social issues have been recognised, and that it is seen as a sustainable company.
The FTSE4Good Index Series was created by global index provider FTSE Russell and is designed to measure the performance of companies that demonstrate strong ESG practices.
The FTSE4Good Index Series is widely used to create and evaluate sustainable investment funds and other financial products.
Epson has also been selected for inclusion in the FTSE Blossom Japan Index, FTSE Blossom Japan Sector Relative Index, MSCI Japan ESG Select Leaders Index, MSCI Japan Empowering Women Index (WIN), and the S&P/JPX Carbon Efficient Index.
