The BMW Group has been named as the automotive industry’s Supersector leader for the sixth consecutive year, and is therefore the world’s most sustainable automobile manufacturer.
This was the conclusion of the SAM Group, published in its latest evaluation for the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI).
The BMW Group is the only company in the automotive industry to have been listed in this important group of sustainability indexes every year since it was established in 1999, and named Supersector leader for each of the past six years.
This year, the BMW Group is also the only German company to be ranked among the 19 Supersector leaders worldwide.
Sustainability is an integral part of the BMW Group's corporate strategy after the Board of Management at BMW Group declared sustainability one of the company’s core strategic principles back in 2000. This is enacted from the development of fuel-saving and alternative vehicle concepts through clean production processes to green recycling practices. The BMW Group also accepts responsibility for its 96,000 employees and is involved in social projects outside of its plants.
