Alstom attains score of “A-” in CDP 2018 climate change questionnaire
22 January 2019 – Alstom has improved its score from “B” to “A-” in the CDP climate change questionnaire. Earlier today, the company was also named one of the "100 Most Sustainable Companies in the World" by Corporate Knights. These distinctions demonstrate Alstom's commitment to sustainable mobility and underline the company’s policy and strategic structure aiming to reduce negative impacts in terms of climate change.
The CDP (formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project) manages the global disclosure system that enables businesses, cities, states and regions to measure and manage their environmental impacts. The organisation awards grades ranging from “A” to “D-”, with “A” and “A-” ratings representing about 5% of the companies evaluated. This rating is established relative to peer companies from the industrial, electrical equipment and machinery sectors.
Corporate Knights Inc. brings together Corporate Knights, the corporate social responsibility magazine, and a research division that classifies and evaluates financial products based on their performance in corporate social responsibility and sustainability. The annual "Global 100" ranking of the 100 most sustainable companies in the world, initiated by Corporate Knights in 2005, is announced every year alongside the World Economic Forum in Davos.
In September, Alstom was selected for the eighth consecutive year in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), World and Europe, which recognises its leading position in the field of sustainable development.
