Schneider Electric ranked a global leader by CDP for the 7th year running for its action on climate change
For the seventh year running, Schneider Electric has been included in CDP’s Climate A List of companies leading the fight against carbon emissions. Only 112 companies worldwide, among nearly 2,500 participants, are selected in this ranking. It recognizes the Group’s strategy of promoting environmentally and climate-friendly development as an intrinsic driver of business performance.
The 2017 Climate A List has been unveiled in a report by CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project), a non-profit organization aiming to drive the development of sustainable economies. This report serves as a leading global framework for businesses to compare their climate performance, demonstrating how international corporations have started their transition towards a low-carbon economy and are reaping the benefits. In 2017, CDP has raised the bar, increasing its requirements for inclusion in the A list, which was drawn up on behalf of 803 investors with assets of $100 trillion.
CDP rankings are becoming increasingly influential among companies and their stakeholders. The number of companies applying for the CDP program has increased by 33% since 2013 and now accounts for 56% of global market capitalization.
The Climate A List, along with a climate report on each company participating annually in the CDP climate change program, are available on the CDP website.
