Marks the Sixth Consecutive Year DIC Has Earned Inclusion as a Company Demonstrating Outstanding Sustainability

TOKYO—February 9, 2024—DIC Corporation has been listed in the 2024 edition of the Sustainability Yearbook, a ranking of companies demonstrating outstanding sustainability published by S&P Global Inc., one of the world’s leading providers of credit ratings. This marks the sixth consecutive year the company has earned inclusion.

S&P Global conducts an annual Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA), which it uses to rank companies from around the world on their sustainability in the Governance & Economic, Environmental and Social dimensions. Of the more than 9,400 companies in 62 industries assessed in 2023, only 759 achieved a score in the top 15% of their industry and within 30% of that industry’s best-performing companies, earning inclusion in the Sustainability Yearbook 2024. Of these, 30 companies were from the chemicals industry, including five headquartered in Japan.

DIC has traditionally earned high marks in the Governance & Economic Dimension for its innovation management efforts, as well as in the Environmental Dimension for its climate strategy. In 2023, the Company received a particularly glowing evaluation in the Social dimension for its labor practice indicators and human rights initiatives.

DIC has also been selected for inclusion in major global ESG investment indices such as the DJSI Asia Pacific Index and the FTSE4Good Index Series. In addition, the company is a constituent of ESG indices used by Japan’s Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF), namely MSCI’s MSCI Japan ESG Select Leaders Index, the FTSE Blossom Japan Index and the S&P/JPX Carbon Efficient Index.

 Guided by its DIC Vision 2030 long-term management plan, the DIC Group aims to contribute to sustainability for the global environment and for society. The Group will continue to promote effective disclosure while placing a priority on communication with its stakeholders as it strives to bolster its corporate value over the long term.
