160 Corporate Leaders in Environmental Performance Named by CDP

CDP has named 160 corporations to its annual A List as “the world’s businesses leading on environmental performance.” CDP’s list is attracting more buy-in: the number of companies reporting to its investor program has risen 33% since 2013. This surge is attributed to increased transparency and measurement of environmental action on the part of companies. In a measure of how the A List has grown in importance, reporting companies now represent 56% of global market capitalization. Among the selected leaders: Astra Zeneca, Bank of America, BNY Mellon, BT Group, Coca-Cola European Partners, Diageo, Fujitsu, HP Inc, ING Group, Landsec, LG Electronics, Lockheed Martin, National Grid, Nestlé, Owens Corning, Samsung, Schneider Electric, the Mosaic Company, UBS, and Unilever.
