The Global Sustainability Signatories Index (GSLI) is composed of the top 100 Global Compact signatories with the highest ESG rating in their respective regions and industries.

Global Sustainability Leaders Index

The Global Sustainability Leaders Index (GSLI)* stems from the belief that companies that manage Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues well can also yield superior risk-adjusted returns. The index is composed of 100 sustainability leaders selected on the basis of Sustainalytics’ proprietary ESG Rating, which identifies the top performers within their respective sectors and regions.

The Jantzi Social Index (JSI) was launched in January 2000 in partnership with Dow Jones Indexes. It is a socially screened, market capitalization-weighted common stock index modeled on the S&P/TSX 60 consisting of 50 Canadian companies that pass broad set of ESG criteria. The JSI has begun to generate the first definitive data on the effects of social screening on financial performance in Canada.

The United Nations Global Compact partnered with Sustainalytics in 2013 to create this global index whose constituents are a representative set of 100 UN Global Compact signatories that have demonstrated strong practices and performance in implementing the Global Compact principles.
