Alstom attains score of “A-” in CDP 2019 climate change ranking
21 January 2020 – Alstom has maintained its score of “A-” in the 2019 CDP climate change questionnaire. This consistency demonstrates Alstom's commitment to sustainable mobility and underlines the company’s policy and strategic structure aiming to reduce negative impacts in terms of climate change.
“We are very proud to have maintained our positive rating this year. It demonstrates our continuous commitment and sustained performance on energy and climate challenges. Supporting energy transition and decarbonization in transport is at the heart of our new Alstom in Motion strategy,” said Cecile Texier, Alstom Vice President of Sustainability & CSR.
Alstom’s new strategy Alstom in Motion sets ambitious environmental objectives for 2025, including a 25 % reduction in the energy consumption (vs. 2014), sourcing of 100 % of the company’s electricity supply from renewables, and for 100 % of newly-developed solutions to be eco-designed.
The CDP (formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project) is a not-for-profit charity that runs the global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, states and regions to measure and manage their environmental impacts. Using a comprehensive, independent and transparent methodology, the organisation scores thousands of companies from “A” to “D-” on an annual basis, with “A” and “A-” ratings representing approximately 6% of the companies evaluated. This rating is established relative to peer companies from the industrial, electrical equipment and machinery sectors. In 2019, over 8,400 companies disclosed through CDP – a significant 20% increase on the previous year.
In September 2019, Alstom was selected for the ninth consecutive year in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), World and Europe, which recognises its leading position in the field of sustainable development.
