Having only last month secured a position on the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) 2016 Climate A List, we’re excited to announce that we’ve also been awarded a position on the 2016 Water A List. The list identifies which companies from across the globe are leading the way in sustainable water management.
This year, hundreds of companies submitted information for the list with results independently assessed against CDP’s scoring methodology – developed in collaboration with leading peers and experts in corporate water stewardship and its lead scoring partner South Pole Group.
The 2016 list features companies that are seen as being on the path to sustainably managing water and is produced at the request of 643 investors with US$67 trillion in assets by CDP. Of the 607 companies that were eligible for a score in CDP’s water programme this year, we are among only 24 that have been awarded the A grade.
The listing is a result of the hard work we’ve undertaken to minimise water impacts in our value chain, establish a water sustainable operation and set the standard for water efficiency. We know that water is one of the world’s most precious resources which is why we’re taking a holistic approach to water stewardship – working to protect the future sustainability of water sources and be an efficient user of water.
