Lotte Chemical was granted the Industry Mover award in the sustainable management category at the SAM-Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (SAM-DJSI) on January 19 for the first time in the domestic chemical industry.

The Industry Mover award is offered to a company, which achieves the best sustainable management result compared to a previous year, in each industry among top 2,000 companies in terms of market capitalization worldwide, determined by its score in RobecoSAM's annual Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA).

Lotte Chemical was selected as the best performing chemical company in the nation at the 2016 DJSI in September and the company has been included in the DJSI Asia –Pacific sector for six years in a row since 2011.

In particular, the achievement is meaningful in that the Lotte Chemical won the award in the DJSI chemical category after competing global leading chemical companies, such as BASF, Dow Chemical and Akzo Nobel.
