​​​The JSE Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) Index promotes sustainable and transparent business practices

The SRI index series evolved considerably since it was launched in May 2004. The advent of sustainability initiatives internationally and the King code locally, also saw the index created to foster good corporate citizenship and promote sustainable development.

Listed companies in the FTSE/JSE All Share index were reviewed annually against a set of Environmental, social and governance (ESG) concerns.

SRI Index Annual Review

The last annual review of the Index took place in 2014. The SRI Index will continue to be calculated until the end of 2015, based on the results from the 2014 review

Going forward, assessment will take place as part of the collaboration with FTSE Russell. Further information will follow in due course.
