Bonn, 29th September 2010: The world’s leading logistics services provider Deutsche Post DHL has been listed again in the leading capital market indices: Dow Jones Sustainability World Index, Dow Jones Sustainability Europe Index and FTSE4 Good Global Index. Each year these indices re-evaluate the sustainability efforts and results of companies according to strict criteria, thus creating an important decision basis for sustainability-oriented investors.
Deutsche Post DHL has been listed in the FTSE4 Good since 2004. The group has now performed impressively in the Dow Jones Sustainability World and Europe Index for the second year in succession by achieving high ratings in the economic and social criteria and an outstanding 97% in the ecological criteria of the sustainability ranking.
The excellent results of Deutsche Post DHL were also highlighted in this year’s “Global 500 Report” by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). CDP is a non-profit organization which rates the climate protection data and strategies of the world’s largest companies on behalf of some 534 investors worldwide who manage assets totaling around 64 trillion dollars.
The “Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index” rates companies according to their reporting of climate data and how they approach the issue of climate change in operational and strategic terms. Here, the group came second in a global comparison, scoring 97 out of a possible 100 points. Deutsche Post DHL was also among the top ten percent of the world’s 500 leading companies that achieved the highest rating in the “Carbon Performance Leadership Index”.
“The excellent rating by the Carbon Disclosure Project shows that we are on the right track with our GoGreen environmental protection program”, said Frank Appel, CEO of Deutsche Post DHL. “The changing global climate affects us all. As the world’s leading logistics services provider we are constantly working to improve our efficiency, so that we can offer our customers the best sustainable logistics solutions.”
As part of its 2015 Strategy, Deutsche Post DHL has defined sustainable management as a key aspect of its future growth strategy. The main pillars of the sustainability approach consist of acting in a responsible way towards employees and investors and, in particular, of the social commitment and environmental protection programs which Deutsche Post DHL has brought together under the umbrella of “Living Responsibility”.
