Dow Jones Sustainability Index and Brand Valuation

Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes ask a number of questions for businesses to appear within the DJSI; of which 3 are specifically relevant to Brands and Brand Valuations:

  • Do you currently value your brand?
  • Do you integrate the value into your brand strategy?
  • What is your brand governance strategy?

The answers to these questions have a siginificant bearing on the position of a company within the DJSI, and therefore potential financial implications for the company.
