The feedback of ESG (environmental, social and governance) rating agencies is very important to us as a benchmark and an indicator of our stakeholders’ main concerns.

- In our EcoVadis rating, we were awarded the gold medal for our sustainability performance and therefore rank among the top 5%. We were able to improve our results in areas such as Sustainable procurement (from 60 to 80) and Labor and human rights (from 60 to 70).
- Our ESG rating has been upgraded by rating agency MSCI. MSCI cited further improvements to the already strong corporate governance practices as the main reason for this.
- In the Sustainalytics rating, DB Group was assessed with a moderate ESG risk, a higher ESG risk than in the previous year. This is due to the determination of a higher exposure to material, sector-specific ESG risks, combined with a worse assessment of the management of individual ESG issues.
