Independent rating agencies and research institutes conduct numerous ratings and rankings of sharply varying quality and significance today. Daimler therefore only supplies data for those ratings and rankings whose assessment methodology, quality, and transparency can be subjected to a verifiable analysis.
Top ranking in the CDLI. Daimler achieved a top ranking once again in the CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project) in 2015. The company was honored for outstanding commitment and exemplary transparency in dealing with climate change and scored the maximum number of 100 points in the Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI). In addition, Daimler received an “A-” performance rating for its initiated measures, already achieved progress, and planned strategies for reduction of CO2 emissions, putting it in the top 10 percent of all companies assessed.
We were once again graded “Prime Investment Status” in the rating from oekom research. Our overall assessment was B- ( a very good grade for an automotive company) on a scale from A+ to D-.
