MAN in the Dow Jones Sustainability World and Europe Indices
Sustainability measures show results
MAN has been listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability World and Europe Indices by the Sustainable Asset Management Group (SAM), thereby achieving a key sustainability aim for 2012. Following an increase in 2011 that was in itself significant, MAN improved to 78 out of 100 points this year. This makes MAN the only German company in the industrial engineering sector to be represented in the indices.
In this year’s review, the Company primarily rose in climate strategy, environmental management, and product responsibility. This was especially helped by the clear formulation of climate targets in the new MAN Climate Strategy.
“Being listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability World and Europe Indices is an important milestone in MAN’s considerable development in the area of sustainability. We will also continue our efforts to constantly improve in this respect,” says Jochen Schumm, Chief Human Resources Officer of MAN SE. That is why MAN’s CR Strategy includes the aim of being the leader worldwide in the industrial engineering sector by 2015 when it comes to sustainability.
Companies undergo a best-in-class comparison within their industry when being reviewed for the Dow Jones Sustainability World and Europe Indices. The hurdle that had to be cleared to be listed in the Indices this year was significantly higher than last year. SAM lists MAN in the Industrial Engineering sector. Sustainability performance is judged on the basis of three dimensions – the economic, environmental, and social dimensions.
