The BMW Group won two awards at yesterday’s SAM Group Sustainability Awards ceremony. The company earned SAM Gold Class Status and was also named Sector Leader, the best result among all vehicle makers. SAM Group presented the SAM Sustainability Awards for the first time in Germany.

SAM Group, headquartered in Zurich, is a sustainability rating agency founded in 1995. SAM Group’s Corporate Sustainability Assessments analyses over 2,000 listed companies every year.

At the awards ceremony in the Museum für Telekommunikation in Berlin, Michael Baldinger, CEO of SAM Group, paid tribute to the achievements of the BMW Group: “The BMW Group is a leader in terms of innovation management and has demonstrated a clear commitment to reducing negative environmental impact along the entire value chain.”

Harald Krüger, member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, was there to accept the awards: “For the BMW Group, long-term thinking and taking responsible action along the entire value chain are the basis for economic success. We are delighted to receive this recognition from SAM Group. It honours the efforts made every day by our 100,000 employees worldwide.”

For the BMW Group, sustainability is an integral part of corporate strategy. As a first for the automotive industry, the BMW Group appointed an environmental protection officer in 1973. Since then, the company has systematically developed and consistently implemented its sustainability strategy.

The BMW Group’s commitment to sustainability received several prestigious awards last year as well. For example, the company was named most sustainable auto company in the DowJones Sustainability Index for the seventh consecutive year. For the past 10 years in a row, the BMW Group has also been listed in the FTSE4Good index, one of the most important indices for companies focusing on sustainable management. 2011 also marks the year when the BMW Group came in first among all vehicle makers in the CDP Global 500 Ranking.
