CDP runs a global disclosure system designed to enable companies to better measure and manage their environmental performance through reporting and benchmarking. For 2017, Croda improved their 2016 ‘B’ rating for Climate Change to an ‘A-’, recognising their ongoing investment in managing their environmental impact through verification of their carbon emissions and the subsequent strategies for energy efficiency improvements over the next four years. This score is against a programme average of ‘C’, with only 22% of organisations who submitted Climate Change Disclosures achieving an ‘A’ or ‘A-‘ rating.
The results for the year also saw Croda maintain their ‘B’ Management rating for their Water Disclosure, against a programme average of ‘C’, together with a Forest Disclosure rating of ‘B’ for their work towards deforestation-free supply chains and a Climate Change Supply Chain score of ‘A-/B’.
Terry Thistlethwaite, Vice President of Sustainability at Croda commented: “As we are about to publish our tenth annual Sustainability Report, and being one of only a few companies globally to disclose data against all four CDP programmes, we are continuing to demonstrate our dedication to more sustainable operations and communicating our journey.”
