CDP, formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project, is the leading international not-for-profit organization independently assessing the environmental efforts of thousands of companies worldwide against its scoring methodology. More than 3,000 major companies submitted information for independent assessment for 2016. CDP’s A List recognizes companies around the world, spanning different industries, for leadership in their actions to address environmental risk during the past reporting year. Its environmental benchmark reports are produced at the request of 827 investors with assets of US$100 trillion.
Commenting on the results, André Calantzopoulos, PMI Chief Executive Officer said:
“Climate change and clean water shortage are among the biggest challenges facing humanity today. I am proud that PMI is one of only 25 companies that achieved double “A List” status for both climate and water in CDP’s rankings, and moving forward, even more global action is needed and must be encouraged to collectively address these environmental priorities.”
PMI has made a number of environmental improvements and introduced new initiatives in 2016. Highlights include:
