MAN one of the most sustainable players worldwide in its industry
Renowned environmental rating agency oekom research AG has again rewarded MAN for its sustainable value creation efforts in the vehicle and mechanical engineering industry with a good “B” rating and “Prime” status. This makes MAN one of the industry’s most sustainable companies worldwide by the independent agency’s standards. The good rating is also primarily due to the successful implementation of the Climate Strategy.
In it, the MAN Group has set itself the ambitious target of cutting CO2 emissions at the production sites by 25% by 2020. It has already made a step in the right direction: 2013 saw MAN save 77,000 tons of CO2 emissions which corresponds to a saving of 14% compared with 2008.
The measures that MAN would like to employ to reduce fuel consumption and lower its emissions were particularly convincing. However, alternative drives and fuels like the gas strategy also had a positive effect on the result of the oekom research corporate rating. MAN scored further points with its records of the environmental impact that its products have over their lives.
“The rating result spurs us on to continue to work on being one of the industry’s most sustainable players in the future too,” says Yvonne Benkert, Head of Corporate Responsibility at MAN SE.
