Selected as a component of the "FTSE Blossom Japan Index"
Pigeon Corporation (Headquarters: Tokyo; President and CEO: Norimasa Kitazawa) announces it has been included in the FTSE Blossom Japan Index.
Created by the global index and data provider FTSE Russell, the FTSE Blossom Japan Index is designed as an industry-neutral benchmark that reflects the performance of companies demonstrating strong Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices in Japan. FTSE Russell evaluations are based on performance in areas such as Corporate Governance, Health & Safety, Anti-Corruption and Climate Change. Businesses included in the FTSE Blossom Japan Index meet a variety of environmental, social and governance criteria.
Pigeon Corporation has already been selected by FTSE Blossom Japan Sector Relative Index, adopted by the Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF), one of the world's largest public pension fund, and the new selection follows the current selection.
