Non-governmental organisation, CDP (previously Carbon Disclosure Project) has named thyssenkrupp one of the world’s best companies in climate protection for the third time in a row. The award is to be presented in Brussels on 19 February 2019.
The CDP scoring system is designed to assess whether companies have formulated a coherent strategy on how to further improve their own environmental performance, as well as that of customers and suppliers. thyssenkrupp has achieved the highest possible score and was placed on CDP’s ‘A List’. The list includes around 130 businesses and five DAX companies.
CDP conducts the programme on behalf of more than 650 institutional investors, with assets worth more than US$90 trillion. Several thousand companies worldwide took part in the programme. The organisation also holds the world’s largest collection of corporate climate data and is regarded as a benchmark in the capital markets.
thyssenkrupp has stated that when it comes to climate protection, it focuses on continuous efficiency improvement and long-term innovation leaps – both for its customers and its own processes.
For example, with Oxyfuel thyssenkrupp has developed a solution that efficiently captures CO2 during cement production. The company has stated that its next step is the large-scale expansion of already proven technology.
“Despite the major global challenges, we are optimistic,” said Reinhold Achatz, Chief Technology Officer at thyssenkrupp. “With our resource-saving products and processes, we see climate change as an opportunity and are making our contribution to achieving the climate targets. The third award in a row shows we are right on track. We are convinced that there will not be just one technology. This is why we are open to new technologies and pursue different routes.”
