Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) Training

Organised in collaboration with SAM, now a part of S&P Global


In collaboration with SAM, now a part of S&P Global, CSRWorks offers the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) Training. Training sessions will be conducted by expert speakers/trainers from SAM/DJSI.

The DJSI Training is aimed at enhancing participants’ knowledge and understanding of DJSI’s Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) criteria, methodology and scoring.


The DJSI/CSA is an annual evaluation of companies’ sustainability practices. Companies are selected for inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), S&P 500 ESG and several other sustainability indices on the basis of their results in the CSA.

Currently, approximately 3,500 global companies are assessed annually. Each assessed company is assigned corporate sustainability performance scores which provide the company with an opportunity to understand in detail its sustainability performance relative to its peers.


There are two training courses:
1. DJSI Fundamentals training for beginners (one day)
2. DJSI Expert training for advance level users (one day)


The DJSI Fundamentals Training Course aims to introduce the participants to the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), the components of the SAM Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) and the calculation of scoring.This training is most suitable for those companies which are new to responding to the CSA questionnaire.

The DJSI Expert Training Course is a “deep dive” training for advanced users of DJSI that covers new changes to the methodology, score comparisons, in-depth coverage of the selected assessment criterion and questions and benchmarking ESG performance.


This course is most suitable for senior managers in the area of sustainability, ESG analysis, sustainability reporting, DJSI assessment submissions, investor relations, GHG emissions/climate change, environmental management, human resources, sustainable finance and investment and corporate governance.
