Berlin, November 10, 2022 – Once again, the magazine FOCUS and the sustainability initiative For Our Planet have honored the PSI Group as one of the German companies with top climate commitment in their study, which was conducted for the second time. As in the previous year, the selection was carried out together with research partner FactField, Klimaschutz-Unternehmen e.V. and Prof. Dr. Stefan Schaltegger from the Centre for Sustainable Management (CSM) at Leuphana University Lüneburg.
In total, 216 companies were honored for their top climate commitment, including 14 from the EDP and IT industry group, of which only PSI and one other company were rated as "excellent" in all four dimensions.
In the run-up, 200,000 companies located in Germany were invited to report in a comprehensive online survey on their previous commitment as well as their company climate management and the improvements achieved. In addition, public data sources were analyzed for quality assurance purposes. Based on this, the status of climate commitment and the main climate impacts of products and services were researched and evaluated. Finally, each company received a point value for the four dimensions of previous commitment, operational climate management, renewable energies/climate-friendly products and future commitment.
For PSI, social responsibility and sustainability in customer projects and own processes have been of particular importance since the company was founded in 1969. PSI supports the sustainability goals of the United Nations and has been reporting emissions data to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) since 2011.
