Join Date: Dec 2001
The BMW Group achieved its best ever result in the Global 500 ranking of the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) published today. Scoring 99 out of a possible 100 points, the company is Sector Leader, underscoring its leading position as the most sustainable automotive manufacturer in the world. In addition, the BMW Group ranks among the Top 3 of all participating companies worldwide.
Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Norbert Reithofer, emphasized: “We are focused on climate protection at all our locations worldwide. We consistently promote environmental protection at our plants and have made major progress in recent years. Our success in the CDP Global 500 ranking confirms that we are on the right track.”
The Carbon Disclosure Project’s ranking is regarded as one of the most prestigious ratings for sustainability and evaluates 500 companies worldwide.
Two Leadership rankings are formed from the Global 500 ranking: the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) for transparent reporting and the Carbon Performance Leadership Index (CPLI) for effective action on climate protection. Only the top ten per cent of companies make it onto this index. The BMW Group takes a leading position on both indices.
The BMW Group’s excellent rating shows once again that the company pursues climate protection along the entire value chain and has it embedded in the long-term corporate strategy. The BMW Group also informs its stakeholders of progress and goals in the area of climate protection on a regular basis.
