Excellent Sustainability Performance Confirmed
Classifying Daimler’s investment status as "SAM Gold Class" and "SAM Sector Mover" the financial rating agency "Sustainable Asset Management (SAM)" confirms the Group's excellent sustainability performance.
This was announced while presenting the "SAM Sustainability Yearbook" at the WEF (World Economic Forum) in Davos. Daimler receives this award notwithstanding the fact that the company is not member of the SAM Dow Jones Sustainability Index ("Best in Class" approach). The "SAM Gold Class" classification means that the Daimler overall score differs less than one percentage point from the industry leader (BMW).
In addition, the "SAM Sector Mover" status confirmed for the past year, that Daimler accomplished the best relative improvement of its sustainability performance within the automotive industry.
