Limited has been selected to be a constituent of the Dow Jones Sustainability Emerging Markets Index. DLF is the only real estate company from India to be included in this index and joins the league of 15 companies from India which have been recognized for their ESG initiatives and practices.

Last year also, the company was recognised as an index component of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) in emerging markets category.

The Dow Jones Sustainability Indices is the world’s leading provider of ratings that evaluate publicly listed companies against Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria. Only the most sustainable companies in each industry are considered for inclusion in the list.

“We are encouraged by the continued recognitions for our ESG initiatives. The inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices for the second time is a testament of our efforts. We remain committed to making a difference on issues that matter to our customers and shareholders in the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) areas,” said Ashok Kumar Tyagi, Whole time Director & CEO DLF Limited.

As of November 12, 2021, DLF performed in the top decile in the S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment with a 97% Percentile ranking.

“We congratulate DLF Limited for being included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for DJSI Emerging Markets indices. A DJSI distinction is a reflection of being a sustainability leader in your industry. The record number of companies participating in the 2021 S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment is testament to the growing movement for ESG disclosure and transparency,” said Manjit Jus, Global Head of ESG Research, S&P Global.
