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. In 2016, the non-profit organization CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project) once again put Daimler in the “leadership” category for its climate-related reporting activities. The company was honored for outstanding commitment and exemplary transparency in dealing with climate change. In addition, Daimler is one of the top-rated companies of the German ranking, where it received a score of A and the status of Index/Country Leader DAX for initiated measures, already achieved progress, and planned strategies for the reduction of CO2 emissions.
Daimler once again achieved “Prime Investment Status” in the rating from oekom research. We received an overall assessment of B- (on a scale of A+ to D-), which is a very good grade for an automotive company.
