PSA Peugeot Citroen Ranked As Top Carmaker For CSR Performance In 2016
German rating agency Oekom today presented its list of the world’s most responsible companies by industry, from among the 3,700 companies assessed.
These ratings, the first to be published since COP 21 (also known as the 2015 Paris climate Conference), are based on a number of criteria, which now include the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
After coming third last year, PSA Peugeot Citroën took the top spot in the automotive industry this year with a “B”, the highest rating across all industries.
The accolade pays tribute, in particular, to the Group’s commitment to reducing CO2 emissions from both its vehicles and its production facilities, and to its achievements in this area.
The rating also confirms the validity of the Group’s efforts to ensure transparency with regard to its vehicles’ fuel consumption and emissions performance and its decision to use efficient, affordable “clean technologies”.
PSA is already ranked No. 1 in the automotive industry for CSR performance by French rating agency Vigeo and is the only carmaker to be included in the Euronext Vigeo World 120 index, which brings together the 120 most responsible companies worldwide.
