CDP’s annual environmental disclosure and scoring process is widely recognized as the gold standard of corporate environmental transparency. A CDP A rating is awarded to companies that are going beyond awareness and management to show environmental leadership and demonstrate best practices in strategy and action.
Givaudan CEO, Gilles Andrier, comments, "Climate and water are two of the most urgent challenges the world faces today. We all have a role to play in helping address these challenges and it is vital that businesses like ours step up to drive action and inspire progress by leading the way. We're extremely proud to be recognized once again with a CDP double A rating; not only as a testament to the efforts of our teams across the business, but as a demonstration of our commitment to charting a more sustainable future for our industry and the world at large."
Maxfield Weiss, executive director, CDP Europe said, “CDP saw nearly 20,000 companies disclose environmental data this year, including 70% of European companies by market value. COP27 showed the need for transformational change is more critical than ever if we are to limit warming to 1.5°C. I’m therefore delighted that European companies make up nearly half of all A List companies around the world, including 15 with two A scores and 8 with triple A scores for climate change, forests, and water security leadership. We must cut emissions by half and eliminate deforestation by 2030, alongside achieving water security on the same timescale–there is no route to 1.5°C without nature.’’
Givaudan's latest sustainability report will be published at the end of January 2023.
