Ms Wang Look Fung, Director of Group Corporate Affairs, Keppel Corporation, said, "In our commitment to operate our businesses sustainably, Keppel is focused on identifying and managing long-term risks and opportunities which include economic, environmental and social dimensions. The company's inclusion in the DJSI Asia Pacific recognises our leadership in sustainability."

Keppel Corporation recently published its 2012 sustainability report to communicate its aspirations, plans, actions, performance and commitment to grow holistically.

The DJSI was launched in 1999 and is the longest-running global sustainability benchmark worldwide. It has become a reference point in sustainability investing for investors and companies. Corporate sustainability scores are calculated based on RobecoSAM's established research methodology that accounts for general as well as industry-specific sustainability trends and evaluates corporations based on a variety of criteria including climate change strategies, energy consumption, human resources development, knowledge management, stakeholder relations and corporate governance.
