The World’s Most Sustainable Companies 2016 FORBES magazine – Corporate Knights data

The workforce, the workplace, and the future of both.

BMW, the Munich-based maker of luxury cars and motorcycles, is the world’s most sustainable company this year, according to a ranking released this week by Toronto-based media company Corporate Knights.

The company earned particularly high marks for “efficient use of water, energy, and lack of waste,” as well as its “responsible approach to paying taxes, large innovation investments, low employee turnover, and low CEO-to-average-worker pay ratio.”

To determine the sustainability of a company’s employee management practices, Corporate Knights considers reports of fatalities or lost time, turnover, diversity in leadership, and female representation on the board and in management.The ranking exclusively considers characteristics that can be measured quantitatively and does not factor in a company’s exposure to risks that cannot be quantified and are thus subjective.
