HIGH SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS EARNING MARKET AND ANALYST RECOGNITION
In 2015, Valeo gained further recognition for its commitment to sustainable development. • Valeo took first place in the automotive segment of the 2015 Low Carbon 100 Europe index launched by Euronext to coincide with COP21 in December 2015. • The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), which assesses the transparency and performance of companies in terms of their carbon footprint, awarded Valeo a score of 95 out of 100 on transparency, well above the average for the automotive supplier category (83 points), and a C for performance, in line with the industry average. • Sustainalytics successively ranked Valeo “industry leader” in 2014, then “outperformer” in 2015, awarding the Group a rating of 76 out of 100. • The Harvard Business Review ranked Jacques Aschenbroich as the leading Chief Executive Officer in France (and 14th worldwide) in its list of Top 100 Best-Performing CEOs in the World in 2015. Fully 20% of the final assessment was based on the Group’s excellent score in sustainable development, which put Valeo in the number two place in the automotive sector.
“In 2015, Valeo conducted a materiality analysis to compare internal sustainable development ambitions with all external stakeholders’ expectations. We are now able to identify key areas and prioritize our actions not only according to Valeo’s needs and expectations, but also to those of our stakeholders in the broadest sense of the term. Above all, this means our customers, our employees and the investors and SRI agencies that rate the Group. Designed to evolve over time, this matrix will be of particular help in ensuring that we do not lose sight of our priorities and that we adapt our governance methods to reflect constantly changing challenges.”
