The top five companies within the S&P/BMV IPC, the primary index of the Mexican Stock Exchange (BMV), are notable for their inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainable Index. This reflects a significant trend in the Mexican market, where sustainable practices are increasingly becoming a priority for leading companies.

Walmart de México, América Móvil, Fomento Economico Mexicano (FEMSA), Grupo Financiero Banorte, and Grupo México are among the prominent Mexican companies featured in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index. These companies, representing diverse sectors such as retail, telecommunications, consumer goods, finance, and industrial conglomerates, are not only leaders in their respective fields but also in sustainable business practices.

The Dow Jones Sustainability MILA Pacific Alliance Index, which includes these Mexican firms, measures the performance of companies that are considered best-in-class in terms of sustainability within their industries. These companies are members of the S&P MILA Pacific Alliance Composite and meet certain sustainability criteria more effectively than their industry peers.

The Mexican companies, which represent a substantial 72.6% of the total weight, are part of a broader group of 67 companies in the index. These companies have a combined capitalization of $483,668 million.

FEMSA holds the highest weight within the index, with a share of 11.4%. Other notable Mexican firms in the index include Coca-Cola FEMSA, Arca Continental, Cementos Mexicanos (Cemex), and Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico.
