JWD InfoLogistics PCL became an SET-listed firm in 2015, when its shares became tradeable among investors, including its own employees.
Traditionally, an investor will rely a decision to invest in a stock mainly on the stock issuer’s financial performances. The price of a stock issued by a company with great revenue and profit figures will usually rise.
SET, however, is campaigning for a closer attention among listed firms and investors to nonfinancial performances that measure the success of a firm in fulfilling its responsibility to the world community, by including firms with high nonfinancial performances on “Thailand Sustainability Investment” (or THSI) list.
THSI list is a list of listed firms that operate businesses sustainably and pay attention to environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. It facilitates the decision-making of the investors who subscribe to the notion of “sustainable investing” as an approach to achieving constant and long-term returns.
The average dividend yield of firms on the list is 3.63%, higher than the average dividend yield of 3.44% for all listed firms (as of 10 October 2017).
Inclusion of JWD in the THSI list indicates the company’s commitment to not only pursuing its corporate goals but also supporting common causes in the social, community and environmental areas, as all parties are interdependent and can contribute positively to the welfare of other.
What have been taken by JWD as a THSI firm will be highlighted in the next issue of Stars Update. Don’t miss it!
