What did Mercedes do to accomplish this?

Mercedes received the award for its “outstanding efforts and exemplary transparency” in tackling climate change, and achieved the maximum possible score of 100 in the Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI). The group also recognized Mercedes for receiving the highest possible performance rating of "A" for the measures it has introduced, the progress it has already made and its planned strategies for reducing CO2 emissions.

Mercedes reduces emissions in their fleet

CDP acknowledged the fact that Daimler has reduced the CO2 emissions of its new passenger car fleet in Europe by more than 20 percent to 134 g/km over the last five years. In addition to constant improvements to the individual vehicle models like the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Mercedes also has reduced emissions in their plants. By the year 2020, CO2 emissions of the company's plants in Europe are to be reduced by 20 percent compared with 1990. This represents a two-thirds reduction in emissions per passenger car produced.
