L’Oréal is the only company to have achieved for six years running an ‘A’ for all three environmental themes assessed by CDP: tackling climate change, acting to protect forests and ensuring water security. This year, nearly 12,000 companies disclosed data on environmental impacts, risks and opportunities through CDP’s questionnaires.
“Many congratulations to all the companies on this year’s A List. Taking the lead on environmental transparency and action is one of the most important steps businesses can make, even more so in the year of COP26 and the IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Report. The scale of the risk to businesses from climate change, water insecurity and deforestation can no longer be ignored, and we know the opportunities of action far outweigh the risks of inaction. Leadership from the private sector is essential for securing global ambitions for a net-zero, nature positive and equitable world. Our A List celebrates those companies who are preparing themselves to excel in the economy of the future by taking action today”.
Paul Simpson, CEO of CDP
