Bmw named world’s most sustainable automobile manufacturer

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 13, 2010

The SAM Group has named the BMW Group as the world’s most sustainable automobile manufacturer and the automotive industry’s Supersector leader for the sixth straight year. The SAM Group came to this conclusion and published its results during its latest evaluation for the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI).

The BMW Group holds the distinction as the only auto company to be listed in this group of sustainability indexes each year since it was set up in 1999. For this year, the BMW Group turned out to be the sole German company to be included in this list of 19 Supersector leaders worldwide.

Dr. Norbert Reithofer, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, said that he is pleased with the recognition from the renowned Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes.

He said that this independent ranking is a confirmation of the leading role that the BMW Group plays in the “automotive industry of the future.” He added that the company considers being the world’s most sustainable automobile company as having accepted responsibility as a “good corporate citizen.”

He said this award urges the company to continue to operate towards its “vision of sustainable individual mobility.” SAM Group analysts gave a high rating to BMW Group since its corporate strategy considered sustainability as integral part.

In fact, it was in 2000 that sustainability was declared by the BMW Group’s Board of Management as one of the company’s core strategic principles.

Corporate sustainability is ingrained in the entire value chain at the BMW Group, from the development of fuel-saving and alternative vehicle concepts through clean production processes to green recycling practices.

The SAM Group also liked how the BMW Group accepts responsibility for its 96,000 employees. It also applauded BMW’s participation in social projects outside of its plants.
