Making the ‘A List’ for corporate action on climate change

Lucas Bobes

Head of Sustainability, Amadeus IT Group

Our efforts regarding environmental sustainability have been recognised by CDP, the main international standard for CO2 reporting and management for corporations, with Amadeus inclusion in their Climate Performance Leadership Index 2014.

The Climate Performance Leadership Index is formed by the top 187 listed companies demonstrating a superior approach to climate change through actions to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the business risks associated with it. Information provided by nearly 2,000 listed companies has been independently assessed against CDP’s widely-respected scoring methodology and ranked accordingly.

We were awarded an A grade for our climate performance, earning a position on this global ranking of corporate efforts to mitigate climate change.

Low Carbon Future

Climate performance leaders of The A List index are investing to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and collectively have dropped their total (absolute) emissions by 33 million metric tons in the past reporting year, whilst also achieving impressive financial results. In this way, the leaders illustrate that a low carbon future does not mean low profit.

CDP performance scores provide a tool for institutional investors and stakeholders to evaluate and track corporate efforts to mitigate climate change. Scores are communicated to investors and other decision makers through various channels, including Bloomberg terminals, to help them assess corporate preparedness for changing market demands and emissions regulation.

The A List: CDP Climate Performance Leadership Index 2014, along with the climate disclosures of all companies publicly taking part in CDP’s climate change program this year, is available on their website.
