Kyoto/London - Kyocera today announced that it has been recognized among the world's leading companies in the fight against climate change, receiving an “A” ranking in “The A List 2020” from the international non-profit CDP.
Each year, CDP scores companies with the goal of incentivizing improvements in three main areas: climate change, forest sustainability and water security. CDP helps guide companies toward becoming environmental leaders by reviewing their disclosures and grading firms from A to D-minus through its independent scoring methodology.
The A List for climate change includes 270 companies worldwide. These companies are leading the trend to reduce environmental risks and build a more sustainable global economy that serves both people and our planet.
Founded in 2000, CDP was the first platform to link environmental integrity and fiduciary duty. Now with the world’s largest, most comprehensive dataset on environmental action, CDP runs the global environmental disclosure system in terms of risks and opportunities on climate change, water security and deforestation with its insights which empowers investors, companies, cities, and national and regional governments to make the right choices to build a thriving economy that works for people and planet in the long term.
