Our environmental targets are supported by a Group-wide Environmental management system NO. 131 that is in accordance with DIN ISO 14001. The system’s compliant integration into our Group regulations has been verified by an independent institute. On this basis, 78% of our 279 environmentally relevant Group companies used an environmental management system in accordance with DIN ISO 14001 in the year under review. This share of environmentally relevant Group companies that use a certified environmental management system has increased. The increase in certified companies worldwide is a result of the successful matrix certification (ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001) for the entire Middle East and Africa (MEA) region. The Group Sustainability and Environmental Unit is responsible for complying with and further developing Group-wide environmental management standards. No significant fines or other penalties for environmental offenses were levied against DB Group companies in the year under review.
