German automaker, BMW, was named the world’s most sustainable auto company in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index by the SAM Group. This is the seventh consecutive year the BMW has won the prestigious award.
“The success of the BMW Group is built on a long-term approach and responsible action. We are pleased to be recognized by the renowned Dow Jones Sustainability,” said Dr Norbert Reithofer, Board of Management Chairman for BMW AG. Reithofer also thanked the company’s 95,000 employees whose day-to-day work made the award possible.
Sustainability has been an important part of BMW’s corporate strategy since its environmental office was established in 1973 – the first of its kind in the automotive industry.
