Toppan has also been selected to the Dow Jones Sustainability Asia/Pacific Index for the second year in a row.
Toppan is one of 323 companies named to the DJSI World index from a total of approximately 3,500 leading global companies reviewed.

Toppan’s continued selection to the DJSI index family further builds on ongoing recognition by other leading indexes of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance, including FTSE4Good and MSCI ESG Leaders, as well as the FTSE Blossom Japan, MSCI Japan Empowering Women (WIN), and S&P/JPX Carbon Efficient indexes used by the Government Pension Investment Fund of Japan.
“We are very pleased that Toppan’s sustainability efforts are consistently recognized with inclusion in the DJSI World index,” said Yukio Maeda, Toppan’s Executive Vice President. “Our goal is to work with stakeholders as a company creating value for a sustainable global society in which people can lead fulfilling lives. To accomplish this, we will intensify focus on our own ESG initiatives while also contributing through our business to the achievement of the sustainability targets of the international community.”
Toppan aligns its activities with the United Nations Global Compact, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the core subjects set out by ISO 26000. The TOPPAN SDGs STATEMENT, published in November 2019, expresses the company’s commitment to integrating approaches to the SDGs into its management. This has been further detailed with the recent announcement of “TOPPAN Business Action for SDGs,” which identifies specific areas of focus for Toppan’s sustainability activities.
