Kimco Realty Becomes First North American Retail Owner Named to DJSI World Index

Kimco Realty Corp. (NYSE: KIM), one of North America’s largest publicly traded owners and operators of open-air, grocery-anchored shopping centers and mixed-use assets, today announced that it has been newly named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World), where it is the only North American retail real estate owner listed. The DJSI World Index is comprised of corporate leaders in global sustainability, with companies listed on the Index representing the top 10 percent of the largest 2,500 companies in the S&P Global Broad Market Index based on long-term economic and environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. Kimco also remains the only retail real estate owner listed on the DJSI North America Index, a designation the company has held for six consecutive years.

“Kimco’s listing on the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index is a significant milestone, and a testament to the hard work our team has put in over the past decade to establish an industry-leading ESG strategy and unmatched stakeholder transparency,” said Conor Flynn, Kimco’s Chief Executive Officer. “A focus on ESG is now truly ingrained in our company’s DNA, and the events of 2020 have only served to reinforce the importance of our programs and our stakeholder-driven approach to these critical issues.”

Year-over-year improvements in resource efficiency, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and transparency around employee and community impacts were the main drivers of the score improvements leading to Kimco’s DJSI World listing. Kimco’s 2019 Corporate Responsibility Report, which is aligned with the SASB and TCFD standards, provides a thorough account of Kimco’s quantitative and qualitative ESG performance.

Launched in 1999, the DJSI were among the very first set of global indices to track the largest and leading sustainability-driven publicly listed companies. The DJSI are considered the gold standard for measuring and advancing global ESG efforts, and they are among the most highly recognized indices for corporate sustainability.
