CDP ranking reveals corporate climate change champions
Apple, Diageo, Sainsbury's, Roche Holding and Google are among CDP's ranking of corporate 'A listers' for their actions to mitigate climate change.
The international not-for-profit CDP holds the most comprehensive set of global corporate environmental data and has just issued its annual Climate Change Report on behalf of 822 investors representing US$95 trillion.
The new publication includes the 2015 Climate A List, which comprises those companies identified as A grade for their actions to mitigate climate change. Nearly 2,000 companies submitted information to be independently assessed against CDP’s scoring methodology; 113 have made the list, which features brands from around the world such as, Apple, Microsoft and Google, the three largest by market capitalization.
CDP’s executive chairman and co-founder Paul Dickinson says: “The influence of the corporation is mighty. The momentum of business action on climate change suggests we have reached a tipping point, where companies are poised to achieve their full potential. They need ambitious policy at both a national and international level that will support them in this regard and will catalyze participation from industry at scale.”
