DNP's Global Reputation

DNP's inclusion in SRI indices as of September 2017

An SRI index is a stock index comprised of shares in corporations that consider their responsibilities to society.
A company's stock being selected for inclusion in an SRI index is evidence that the company is viewed as both enjoying a high degree of social trust and being in a sound financial position.
DNP works to solve social issues, and is included in the world's major socially responsible investment (SRI) indices.
ESG investment indices, which evaluate companies with respect to environment, social, and governance criteria, are essentially the same as SRI indices.
