Volkswagen in sustainability rankings and indices

Analysts and investors view sustainability performance as a leading indicator of forward-looking corporate governance and therefore increasingly also base their recommendations and decisions on companies’ sustainability profiles. Sustainability ratings are particularly well suited to evaluating a company’s environmental, social and economic performance. If a company achieves the highest scores in these ratings, this sends a clear signal to its stakeholders. It also raises its attractiveness as an employer and the motivation of its existing employees.

In sustainability rankings and indices – such as the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices, Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), Sustainalytics, or oekom research – where we held top positions before the emissions issue, Volkswagen’s ratings have been downgraded or removed.
