Not exactly clear.
The DJSI is "highly respected investors' guide"? By whom, exactly?
Nextly, your headline reads: "HP, Microsoft dumped from Dow Jones 'green' list, $8 billion at risk"
However, neither HP nor MIcrosoft, separately or together, seems to be in danger of losing anywhere near that amount, as that $8bn seems to be the *total* amount invested based on the DJSI. So the headline and subtitle seem to have little to do with reality. Could ya fix it please?
Do you have any evidence that being on or being booted off of that list has any actual significant consequences, by the way?
(I am not even going to broach the question of whether "SAM Group's" ideas of "sustainability" (quite the buzzword, you know!) has any grounding in reality. Or whether their "sustainability"is meant to be good for the planet, or the people living on the planet, or just for the *wealthy* people living on the planet, at the expense of the poor people. These are all worthwhile questions, by the way.)
PS: In comparison to the amount of money invested in stocks and in businesses in general, $8bn seems like a pittance, don't you think?
