The samples used in this research are all the stocks that were added to and deleted from SRI-KEHATI index on 2009-2018 announcements and FTSE4GBM index on 2014-2018 announcements. The result of hypothesis test shows that SRI index announcement has negative significant effect to the added stocks to SRI-KEHATI’s CAAR before announcement, after announcement and cumulative periods, to added stocks to FTSE4GBM’s before announcement and cumulative periods, and to deleted stocks from FTSE4GBM’s after announcement and cumulative periods. SRI index announcements has positive significant effect to the deleted stocks from SRI-KEHATI’s CAAR before announcement.
