“Event at BM&FBOVESPA starts off celebrations of ten years of the Corporate Sustainability Index (ISE)” – Brazil – December 1, 2014

A symbolic ringing of the opening bell on the November 27 1, 2014 trading session marked the beginning of celebrations of ten years of the Corporate Sustainability Index (ISE) of BM&FBOVESPA. BM&FBOVESPA CEO Edemir Pinto, FGV-EAESP Center for Sustainability Studies (GVces) Coordinator Mario Monzoni and representatives of the 11 companies that have been part of ISE since its first portfolio – AES Eletropaulo, Banco do Brasil, Bradesco, Braskem, BRF, Cemig, CPFL Energia, Fibria, Itaú Unibanco, Natura and Tractebel – participated in the event.

BM&FBOVESPA announced a series of initiatives that will take place through November 2105. “One of the highlights is the ISE Indicators Platform, which will be launched at the start of December at the new ISE website. This platform will allow the user to consult a database that has been accumulated over the ten years of the portfolio and which encompasses the economic performance of the index, the performance of its companies and the themes under focus. This will enable the generation of dynamic graphs and analyses that are based on the questionnaire’s criteria, on indicators and on the relevant themes.”

Also, the white paper “Como comunicar melhor aos investidores as informações socioambientais” (How to better communicate socio-environmental information to investors), produced by GRI, CDP and CEBDS, was launched at the event.
