EBARA Selected for UN Global Compact 100 Index

November 6, 2014

EBARA CORPORATION (“EBARA”) has been included as a constituent in the Global Compact 100 (“GC100”), a stock index launched in 2013 by the UN Global Compact in partnership with Europe-based research firm Sustainalytics.
The GC 100 shows that corporate initiatives to address ESG* issues can lead to improvement in financial performance. Constituents are selected from among signatories to the UN Global Compact based on an assessment of their adherence to the Global Compact’s ten principles in the four areas of human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption, as well as evidence of executive leadership commitment and consistent base-line profitability. The GC100 is reviewed each year.
The UN Global Compact, launched in July 2000, is a voluntary initiative to create a global framework within which companies can contribute to good corporate citizenship and sustainable growth through responsible and creative leadership. Currently, there are more than 8,000 corporate signatories in more than 145 countries (and more than 12,000 other participants in total).
EBARA signed the UN Global Compact in June 2009. In line with the EBARA Group’s CSR policy, which encompasses the 10 principles in the four areas covered by the UN Global Company, EBARA is seeking to strengthen its CSR performance through practice of these principles and continued improvement.
