The responsible investment and the creation of the DJSI Iberian...

The seminar "Responsible investment and the creation of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index Iberian" took place on January 19th at the Millennium bcp Auditorium in Lisbon.

This event, supported by Millennium bcp, was organized by BCSD Portugal - Business Council for Sustainable Development - an organization of which the Bank is a founding member - and included, among other speakers, RobecoSAM analyst who addressed the challenges and opportunities for the creation of the Iberian Dow Jones Sustainability Index (which is expected to occur until October this year) for Portuguese companies, particularly those seeking international investors.

This seminar also allowed us to conclude that the availability of non-financial information (which in Portugal will already be mandatory for the 2017 report) and the recognition of its quality by independent entities are effective and current ways for companies to have greater access to capital and better relations with investors.

It should be noted, finally, that this seminar was held within the framework of the Working Group "Sustainable Finance" of the BCSD-Portugal, from which the Millennium bcp is part.

Stand out should be noted, in the context of the topics covered in this seminar, that BCP publishes voluntarily, since 2004, Sustainability Reports with non financial information on the performance of the Banco Comercial Português Group in Environmental, Social and Governance dimensions, having also participated in the editions of 2011, 2014, 2015 and 2016 of the DJSI World and Europe.

Following these participations, the Bank was included by the analyst RobecoSAM in the 2015 and 2016 editions of the Sustainability Year Book, an international reference publication that highlights, by sector, the best performances and practices of Sustainability.
