Global 500 rank: 60
The French automaker is tops in its industry, ahead of giants like GM (No. 13), Ford (No. 16), and Toyota (No. 23). Like other carmakers, its annual report addresses global warming. Peugeot has an overall measure of the total greenhouse gas emissions of its vehicles - unique among big automakers. But Peugeot also looks at its cars' impact on road safety and urban sprawl. It first talked to stakeholders - like city dwellers, drivers, and roadside communities - then developed indicators like noise emissions that its engineers could aim to reduce in new models.
