Carlsberg Group on CDP’s prestigious ‘A List’ for tackling climate change

Carlsberg Group

Carlsberg Group has been recognised for leadership in corporate sustainability by global environmental non-profit CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project). The company have secured a place on CDP’s prestigious ‘A List’ for tackling climate change, as well as acting to protect water security.

The company in a statement said “We are one of the few companies that achieved a double ‘A’, out of nearly 12,000 businesses that were scored based on data submitted through CDP’s questionnaires in 2021.”

Through significant demonstrable action on climate change and water security risks, we are leading on corporate environmental ambition, action and transparency worldwide.   

CEO Cees ‘t Hart says: “Being accepted onto the A-list is a great recognition of our ambitious carbon and water targets and transparent reporting practices. I strongly believe that our actions within Together Towards ZERO, are making our company stronger and more resilient in an increasingly volatile world. We are part of society, and believe that we need to work together with governments, civil society and other businesses, to secure the transition to a resilient, low-carbon world.”

CDP’s annual environmental disclosure and scoring process is widely recognised as the gold standard of corporate environmental transparency.

A detailed and independent methodology is used by CDP to assess these 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.
