Richemont awarded A rating by CDP for tackling climate change
07 Dec 2021
Richemont has been recognised for its leadership in corporate sustainability by global environmental non-profit CDP, securing a place on its ‘A List’ for tackling climate change.
Matthew Kilgarriff, Group CSR Director, commented: “We are very proud to have been upgraded from A- to A by CDP, an organisation widely recognised as the gold standard of corporate environmental transparency. This is a tribute to all my colleagues at Richemont for engaging effectively to enable progress towards our Sciences Based Targets (SBT), which were validated by the Science-Based Target initiative in September, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in line with the 2015 Paris Agreement. We believe that our SBTs provide us with a clearly defined pathway to help us reduce our impact on climate change, while future-proofing our business for greener growth”.
A detailed and independent methodology is used by CDP to assess companies, allocating a score of A to D - based on the comprehensiveness of disclosure, awareness and management of environmental risks and demonstration of best practices associated with environmental leadership, including setting meaningful targets.
