SUSTAIN: Scania scoop prestigious gong
Scania have been declared the world’s most sustainable commercial vehicle manufacturer.
The brand came 38th in the Corporate Knights Global 100 index, which includes companies from all sectors and takes into account 12 quantitative sustainability indicators.
Indicators include revenue generated per unit of energy consumption, the ratio of CEO to average worker salary, lost time injury rate, carbon emissions and leadership diversity.
Toby Heaps, CEO of Corporate Knights, said: “Topping a well-diversified benchmark is not easy, but the Global 100 has managed to squeak out marginal out-performance across a turbulent period in the history of the capital markets.
“We attribute this excess return to the growing investment relevance of core sustainability themes.”
