Socentix has been listed in SRI KEHATI Linked Index Fund. The listing reflects Socentix’s commitment to environmental and social sustainability as well as good corporate governance.
The SRI-Kehati Index was launched in Jakarta on 8th June 2009 by the Indonesian Biodiversity Foundation, KEHATI. This Index is supported by the Indonesian Stock Exchange (IDX) and is the first in South East Asia to track the performance of Indonesian Corporate Champions in socially and environmentally sustainable business.
The Index provides information to companies and investors about the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance of companies listed on IDX. The research to set the reference and benchmark of the SRI-KEHATI Index is led by OWW Consulting, a leading specialist in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) based in Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.
Socially Responsible Investment is an increasingly important investment style which focuses the ESG performance of companies as well as their financial performance. Integration of best practices in ESG into the selection of companies for investment portfolios is considered by many investors to reduce the performance risk for their investment. Indonesian and international investors who focus on SRI now have a tool to select companies which are in line with their own investment policies.
