Epson Again Named to Dow Jones Sustainability Indicies

November 11 2010 - Seiko Epson Corporation® ("Epson", TSE: 6724) has been selected for the third time as a component company of the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) and the Dow Jones Sustainability Asia Pacific Index (DJSI Asia Pacific), both leading indicators for socially responsible investment (SRI). The international stock indices, jointly developed by the American company Dow Jones and Switzerland's SAM (Sustainable Asset Management) Group, assess companies around the world based on economic, environmental, and social perspectives, and select those with the best future prospects for achieving sustainability.

A review of the component companies is conducted on a yearly basis. On November 4th, 323 corporations out of a pool of roughly 2,500 worldwide were designated as leading companies and selected to be included in the DJSI World. Epson was one of seven that were selected for the computer hardware and electronic office equipment category of the technology sector.

In addition, Epson retained its position in the DJSI Asia Pacific, which was launched in March 2009 and is made up of the top 20% in terms of the SAM analysis out of the largest 600 companies in the developed Asia Pacific markets.
