SANTIAGO, CHILE–(Marketwired – Sep 13, 2017) – ITAÚ CORPBANCA (NYSE: ITCB) (SSE: ITAUCORP) announces that it has once more been selected as an index component of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices — DJSI Chile — being one of the 26 companies of the new portfolio that compound the DJSI Chile 2017.

DJSI is made up of companies of recognized corporate sustainability meaning that they are companies able to create long-term value for their shareholders, maximize business opportunities and also manage the business risks related to economic, environmental, social and cultural factors. In other words, the index focuses principally on the quality of the management of the company which should make transparency, corporate governance and sustainability principal characteristics of their approach to business.

The index is reviewed annually based on a questionnaire sent to the companies and on publicly available information. The survey for the DJSI Chile covered the 80 companies that comprise the IGPA Index in Chile. Only the 26 best classified companies were selected to make up the index, representing 13 business sectors, among which 22 companies comprise the IPSA Index in Chile. Selection is based on the analysis of more than 20 items with respect to company economic, social and environmental performance.

Participation in the DJSI Chile reflects the long-term commitment of Itaú Corpbanca to the ethical conduct of the business, transparency, legal compliance, corporate governance and value creation shared with employees, clients, shareholders and society. We believe that this commitment is a critical factor in maintaining our engagement with sustainable performance over the next few years.
