BMW Group is once again most sustainable automotive company


Munich - The SAM Group published its latest evaluation for the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI) today. For the fourth year in a row the BMW Group leads its sector, and as such, is the world's most sustainable automobile manufacturer. The BMW Group is the only company in its industry to have been listed in this important collection of corporate sustainability indexes every year since they were established in 1999.

The BMW Group's Board of Management defined sustainability as a key corporate principle back in 2000. Sustainability throughout the value chain, comprehensive product responsibility and consistent conservation of resources are firmly anchored in the company's processes.

The BMW Group is using its strategy for sustainable mobility - which encompasses efficiency increases and further electrification of the power train through to the long-term use of hydrogen - to reduce the CO2 emissions of its entire vehicle fleet. Production sites are minimising their environmental impact and conserving resources. High social standards for the employees of the BMW Group have also been implemented at all locations for decades.

The SAM Group analyses the economic, environmental and social performance of approximately 2,500 companies and selects the best in each sector for the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes. General sustainability criteria are considered as well as industry-specific challenges such as climate change. More information is available at www.sustainability-indexes.com.
