Stanley Black & Decker Named A Sector Mover Within The 2012 Dow Jones Sustainability Index For North America

Stocks in this article: SWK

Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE: SWK), a diversified global provider of power and hand tools, mechanical access solutions, healthcare solutions, electronic security and monitoring systems, and products and services for industrial applications, was recently named Sector Mover following selection as a component of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for North America for the second year in a row in September of 2012, in recognition of its leadership in economic, environmental, and social programs performance.

DJSI analysts, RobecoSAM, further identified top performers among indexed companies in a publication released every January. Stanley Black & Decker's 2012 DJSI survey results posted the largest proportional improvement in sustainability performance across 13 assessed companies within the Durable Household Goods sector. As a result, the January release of KPMG's The Sustainability Yearbook 2013 listed Stanley Black & Decker as the Sector Mover. The company was also named a Bronze Class Sustainability Leader within that sector in the same publication.

About the DJSI

The DJSI World Index was first published in September 1999. It is based on the largest 2,500 companies in the Dow Jones Global Total Stock Market Index (DJGTSMI). The DJSI World Index reviews the top 10 percent of these companies in terms of economic, environmental, and social criteria, which equals about 300 companies. The DJSI North America Index launched in September 2005 and reviews the top 20 percent of the 600 largest companies in the United States and Canada.

To be selected for any index, companies must undergo a thorough analysis of corporate-wide economic, environmental and social performance, assessing issues such as corporate governance, risk management, customer relationship management, product stewardship, supply chain standards and labor relations. Dow Jones and Zurich-based Sustainable Asset Management Group release the index annually.
