MAN Truck & Bus has once again been listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI).
The German automaker achieved a DJSI score of 85 out of 100, with improvements in the index’s three main categories: economic, environmental, and social matters.
The score represents a five-point increase compared to the company’s 2014 performance.
Commenting on the listing, Josef Schelchshorn, chief human resources officer at MAN, said: “Our corporate responsibility strategy for a sustainable future is paying off. Today’s award is first and foremost thanks to our employees worldwide, making MAN one of the most sustainable companies.”
MAN is still the only German company to be represented in the indices in the ‘machinery and electrical equipment’ industry. In addition to the economic, environmental, and social matters categories, the firm improved in talent attraction, human resources development, customer relationship management, and supply chain management.
More than 100 mechanical engineering companies were judged on their performance in economic, ecological, and social sustainability.
Franz von Redwitz, managing director of MAN Truck & Bus Middle East, added: “MAN’s sustainability focus drives every aspect of [its] operations, and with particular emphasis on health and occupational safety, including supporting the social commitment of our employees. Our emphasis on sustainability is also reflected in our products with our commitment to developing environmentally-friendly vehicles like our acclaimed CNG buses. Our improved rankings on the DJSI is a wonderful endorsement of our successful approach to sustainability and we look forward to enhancing it even further in the future.”
