MAN presents new CR Report

Dialog event at the MAN Museum in Augsburg

MAN Group will be presenting its achievements in the area of sustainability in its new Corporate Responsibility (CR) Report 2013. The report will be presented as part of the Stakeholder Dialog event at the MAN Museum in Augsburg. Under the motto "We are responsible" MAN will be providing information on the progress that the company made in fiscal year 2013 in the area of ecological, economic and social sustainability.

One of the numerous examples of success: MAN was able to reduce CO2 emissions at its productions sites by 14 percent compared to base year 2008. In doing so, the company has come a great deal closer to the goal of its climate strategy to lower these by a total of 25 percent by 2020.

For the first time MAN has included a chapter on product responsibility in the report. Here the company presents products and initiatives for keeping emissions as low as possible and achieving high product safety. The MAN Diesel & Turbo division has, for instance, developed natural-gas-fired motors for use in thermal power stations that can generate power with above-average efficiency of up to 90 percent – compared to this, conventional large power stations achieve power-generation efficiency of merely about 40 percent on average. And in the MAN Truck & Bus division, a project on the life-cycle analysis of its products has been launched. In this new chapter MAN would like to do justice to the great interest of its stakeholders in products with the most leverage for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

MAN is on the right path with its CR strategy. The rating agency RobecoSAM has confirmed this by once again including the company in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) in 2013. The index shows MAN closing the gap to the industry leader. In addition, the company was presented with the SAM Sustainability Bronze Class Award for its sustainability performance.

MAN's workforce is the foundation of its success: "We are proud of our top team: our employees are key to long-term success and the most important ambassadors for our CR strategy," says Jochen Schumm, Chief Human Resources Officer of MAN SE and MAN Truck & Bus AG. Employer attractiveness and employee satisfaction are among the core components of HR strategy. That’s why once a year MAN conducts a standardized, group-wide employee survey, the Stimmungsbarometer, which 83 percent of the workforce took part in last year. This major instrument serves in particular to determine employee satisfaction, eliminate errors and optimize work processes.

This fourth MAN Group CR Report was compiled in accordance with the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and meets the highest Application Level, "A+". Furthermore, a comprehensive and independent audit was conducted by the accounting and consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers according to the International Standard on Assurance Engagements (ISAE) 3000.
