Volkswagen in sustainability rankings and indices
Analysts and investors are basing their recommendations and decisions increasingly on companies’ sustainability profiles. They draw primarily on sustainability ratings to evaluate a company’s environmental, social and governance performance.
In sustainability rankings and indices such as the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices, FTSE4 Good Indices, Sustainalytics and oekom research, where we held top positions before the emissions issue, Volkswagen’s ratings have been downgraded or removed. Volkswagen had a score of A– in the CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project) and an A rating in the Water Disclosure Project (WDP).
