CDP Climate Rating

Deutsche Bahn AG (DB AG) has once again been awarded the top A rating in the CDP Climate Rating 2022 for its commitment to combating climate change.

As one of around 280 companies, DB AG is among the top group and, according to CDP, one of the most climate-friendly companies in the world. In Germany, twelve companies made it onto the A list in 2022. In total, the organization evaluated more than 18,700 companies in this year's rating.

In its annual rating process, CDP uses a detailed and independent methodology that assigns grades from A to D-. It evaluates the level of transparency and disclosure of climate data, awareness and management of environmental risks, and best practices related to environmental leadership, such as setting ambitious targets.

On behalf of its members - investors, companies and cities - the London-based non-profit international rating organization CDP annually collects environmental data from companies, assesses their climate protection activities and transparency in reporting, and is recognized as the gold standard for corporate environmental transparency.

The Climate A list can be found on the CDP website.
