Teijin Named to Dow Jones Sustainability World Index
For Third Consecutive Year

Tokyo, Japan, September 12, 2011 ---Teijin Limited announced today that for the third consecutive year it has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World), a global indicator for Social Responsible Investment (SRI), effective September 19.


Teijin is the only Japanese company among the 10 included in the chemical sector. A total of 342 companies were selected for this year's index.

Osamu Nishikawa, Chief Social Responsibility Officer and Senior Executive Officer of Teijin Limited, said: "We are honored that the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index has recognized our socially responsible investment practices over the past three years. The Teijin Group is deeply committed to making meaningful contributions to society, including by meeting the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility."
