The Sustainability Yearbook bases its analysis on the public information of the evaluated companies, but also on the comprehensive and prestigious Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) by the analysis agency SAM, which S&P acquired in 2019 and which comprises more than 1,000 data points used to calculate the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), in which Indra has remained for 15 years. The DJSI requires a minimum market capitalization, which is why the Sustainability Yearbook opens up competition to other smaller companies and thus expands the universe of participation.
