PA is quoted in an article that focuses on PA’s automotive benchmarking study assessing five international automotive companies – Volkswagen, BMW, Daimler, Peugeot Citroen and Toyota – on three areas of sustainability: product portfolio, sustainability strategy, and transparency and operational performance.
PA says: “Although Toyota is widely perceived as the most sustainable, Volkswagen came out on top based on our study.”
The article details PA’s study: “VW and Peugeot/Citroen (PSA) win points for their product portfolios and new technology, which include three-cylinder engines, start-stop, regenerative brakes and some electric cars.”
The article points out that according to PA’s benchmarking study, the greenest company is Volkswagen (scoring 81 of 100), followed closely by BMW (70 of 100) and Daimler (69 of 100).
