Deutsche Bahn achieves top position in climate rating among about 13,000 companies

Deutsche Bahn once again receives the top A rating in the CDP's 2021 rating and is thus awarded for its commitment against climate change.

With its efforts against climate change, the Deutsche Bahn Group ( DB Group) thus continues to be considered an international leader. For the fifth time in a row, Deutsche Bahn is one of the most climate-friendly companies in the world.

With an A rating, Deutsche Bahn is in the top group in the climate rating together with 200 companies worlwide. About 13,000 companies disclosed their environmental data via CDP, which is about 35% more than in the previous year (about 9,600 companies).

In the annual credit rating process, CDP applies a detailed and independent methodology, awarding grades from A to D-. The level of transparency and disclosure of climate data, awareness and management of environmental risks, and best practices related to environmentally friendly leadership, such as setting ambitious targets, are assessed.

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

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