Survey determines third-highest score in the IT industry group

Berlin, November 8, 2021 - In a study conducted for the first time by the magazine FOCUS and the sustainability initiative For Our Planet and published on November 6, 2021, the PSI Group was recognized as one of the German companies with top climate commitment. The award-winning companies were selected by FOCUS/For Our Planet 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.

To determine the top list, 42,000 companies located in Germany received an extensive online questionnaire in which the companies provided information on their previous climate commitment and its seriousness, the market impact and contribution of climate-friendly products, and climate targets. In addition to the online survey, public sources were analyzed for quality assurance in a multi-stage process. In addition, a group of experts conducted a scientifically supported research to record information on the status of climate commitment and the main climate impacts of products and services. On this basis, a total of 88 companies were recognized for their top climate commitment, including five companies from the IT industry group, among which PSI achieved the third highest score.
