The Volkswagen Automotive Group has been listed as the most sustainable automaker in the world’s leading sustainability ranking.

It’s the first time in the German automaker’s history that it has been named the Industry Group Leader in the automobiles and components sector in the 2013 review of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI).

DJSI analyzes the corporate economic, environmental and social sustainability performance from a total of 31 automakers. The ranking is based on environmental and climate protection strategy, innovation management and corporate social responsibility.

Over the recent years, Volkswagen has placed an emphasis in sustainability, not just in its vehicles, but at its factories and plants.

“This distinction is a real milestone on our path towards becoming the leader in green mobility,” said Bernd Osterloh, the Chairman of the General Works Council of Volkswagen. “We will devote all our energy to permanently establishing the Volkswagen Group as the world’s most sustainable automaker.”

    wowee that is one raging loud sinking sound coming from Dow Jones

    DJSI ranking is based on environmental and climate protection strategy, innovation management and corporate social responsibility?

    Is that why Suzuki isn’t falling into VW’s arms? Is that why VAG lost Peter Schreyer to KIA? Or why Ferdinand Piëch in his wisdom red lighted co-development of Nicholas Hayek’s Swatch city car?

    FYI; FIAT is about to buy Chrysler; and Daimler-Renault/Nissan will be collaborating on a lot mo’ platformz in da future.
