Munich. The BMW Group achieved its best performance ever in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) ranking which was published today. In the CDP Global 500 ranking, the BMW Group is the number one automotive manufacturer and ranks in the Top 10 of all participating international companies.  Scoring 96 out of a possible 100 points, the company is listed in both the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) and the Carbon Performance Leadership Index (CPLI).

Dr. Norbert Reithofer, Chairman of the Board of Management, BMW AG emphasises: “Our corporate sustainability strategy is based on three pillars: economics, environment, corporate social responsibility.  Climate protection serves an important role in this strategy.  As part of our focus on climate protection, we continue reducing vehicle and production facility emissions around the world.  By protecting the climate, society as a whole also benefits and it just makes good business sense for the BMW Group.”

CDP is regarded as one of the most prestigious ratings for sustainability. The CDLI analyses and evaluates the 500 international companies in the FTSE Global Equity Index Series, with only the top ten percent making it onto the index. The BMW Group’s rating further acknowledges the company’s long-running accomplishments in climate protection along the entire value chain.  This rating also reinforces the BMW Group’s decision to embed sustainability into its long-term corporate strategy. 

The company’s performance in the Carbon Disclosure Project is the second time in one week it has been recognised for its commitment to sustainability. On September 8th, the BMW Group was once again designated the industry leader in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI), making it the world’s most sustainable automobile manufacturer for the seventh year running.

Further information on how the BMW Group conducts sustainable business is available at www.bmwgroup.com/responsibility

The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) is a not-for-profit international organisation which holds the largest database of primary corporate climate change information in the world. In order to reduce emissions and improve performance some 3,000 organisations around the world measure and disclose their greenhouse gas emissions and examine the risks and opportunities arising out of climate change based on the CDP standard. In 2011 the CDP surveyed companies on behalf of 551 institutional investors holding assets under management of USD 71 trillion. www.cdproject.net
