Kyoto/London - For the second consecutive year and based on CDP’s (Carbon Disclosure Project) fifth annual survey of suppliers, Kyocera, headquartered in Japan, has been recognized as a “Supplier Engagement Leader” by the international non-profit organisation CDP. The reason for this is Kyocera's initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout the company's value chain.
The 2020 list includes about 80 Japanese companies and Kyocera was named as a leading company on the list. Through the global disclosure system created by CDP, the environmental impact with focus on the three areas climate change, forest sustainability and water security of companies can be disclosed.
Kyocera has been recognized in particular for its leading qualities in environmental transparency and performance and was highlighted with an “A” grade among the more than 5,800 companies evaluated in 2020. This led to Kyocera being included in CDP's "A List 2020" of forward-thinking companies.
Furthermore, Kyocera's environmental awareness was also recognized by the Wall Street Journal last year. In addition to CPD's awards, the international newspaper included Kyocera as a company on its list of the "100 Most Sustainably Managed Companies in the World" in 2020. To create this ranking, analysts assessed the sustainability metrics of more than 5,500 publicly traded companies, determining that Kyocera is among the top two percent.
Founded in 2000 in the United Kingdom, CDP is an international non-profit organization that represents institutional investors in disclosing and assessing information from large companies on their impact on climate change, greenhouse gas emissions, water management, and other environmental concerns.
