MAN Awarded for Sustainability
Significantly Improved Results and Again Listed in Dow Jones Sustainability World and Europe Indices
MAN has again been included as one of the most sustainable companies in the world’s leading sustainability ranking in 2015. In this year’s Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), the sustainability rating agency RobecoSAM again ranked the Company in the Dow Jones Sustainability World and Europe Indices.
MAN improved in all three main categories: economic (+4 points), environmental (+5 points) and social matters (+8 points). Compared with the previous year, the Company scored 5 more points, achieving an overall result of 85 out of 100. This means that MAN still is the only German company to be represented in the Indices in the “Machinery and Electrical Equipment” industry. The Group showed the most noticeable improvements in “Talent Attraction” (+20), “Human Resources Development” (+17), “Customer Relationship Management” (+16), and “Supply Chain Management” (+12).
More than 100 mechanical engineering companies were judged on their performance in economic, ecological, and social sustainability. The DJSI is the most important performance indicator for financial investors of the world’s most sustainability-driven companies.
“Our Corporate Responsibility Strategy for a sustainable future is paying off,” said Josef Schelchshorn, Chief Human Resources Officer of MAN SE. “Today’s award is first and foremost thanks to our employees worldwide, making MAN one of the most sustainable companies.”
