PSA Group (Paris:UG):

After responding last spring to an in-depth questionnaire based on 21 criteria that cover every aspect of the business, and providing supporting documents, the Group received an overall score of 87/100 this year and ranks first on 6 out of 21 criteria:

  • Low Carbon Strategy, Climate Strategy, Environmental Reporting, Product Stewardship
    RobecoSAM notably recognised the Group's relevant technology choices and praised its transparency initiative, especially in regards to customers, as demonstrated by the Group's publishing of real-world fuel consumption data for Peugeot, Citroën and DS vehicles in partnership with NGOs T&E and FNE.
  • Customer Relationship Management
    The Group's performance in this area is underpinned by its commitment to meeting customer expectations, as expressed by offering top quality service, giving customers the opportunity to share their experiences with the brand online, and turning an ordinary transaction into a personalised relationship with each customer.
  • Materiality
    The PSA Group has demonstrated its ability to take CSR risks and challenges into account in its business model and its Push to Pass strategic plan.

Commenting, Jean-Baptiste de Chatillon, Chief Financial Officer of the PSA Group, said: "The PSA Group's incorporation in the DJSI raises its global visibility and also sends an extremely positive message that boosts investor confidence in our Group's ability to seize opportunities, manage risks and create value over the long term. This will help to drive deployment of the Push to Pass strategic plan."

RobecoSAM and S&P jointly manage the DJSI for the New York Stock Exchange. In 2016, RobecoSAM forged a partnership with premier financial information provider Bloomberg to give all investors and stakeholders access to the results of the more than 3,000 companies assessed.
