Showa Denko Included in Three ESG Indices for Consecutive Years

TOKYO, July 23, 2018 - (JCN Newswire) - Showa Denko (SDK; TSE:4004) is pleased to announce it has been included for consecutive years in the FTSE Blossom Japan Index, by FTSE Russel, and the MSCI Japan Empowering Women Index and MSCI Japan ESG Select Leaders Index, both compiled by MSCI. The FTSE Group is a subsidiary of the London Stock Exchange Group, while MSCI Inc. is a NYSE-listed provider of indexes and investor tools.
