Vattenfall gets highest score for leading effort against climate change

For the first time Vattenfall gets the highest score, “A”, on its climate change response. It is the non-profit organization Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), that has rated Vattenfall. Over 8,000 companies have been assessed and only the top 2 percent achieved the highest score.

Vattenfall is recognized for its actions to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks and develop the low-carbon economy, based on the data submitted by the company through CDP’s 2019 climate change questionnaire.

"I am very proud that Vattenfall is now in the exclusive club of A-listed companies. This is a result of all parts of Vattenfall working together towards our goal of enabling fossil free living within one generation," says Helle Herk-Hansen, Head of Environment at Vattenfall. 

Vattenfall - a Climate A list company

Paul Simpson, CEO at CDP, comments: “Congratulations to the companies that achieved a position on CDP’s A list this year, for leading in environmental performance and transparency. The A list companies are leading the market by tackling environmental risks and setting themselves up to thrive in tomorrow’s economy.”

A detailed and independent methodology is used by CDP to assess companies climate response, allocating a score of A to D- based on the comprehensiveness of disclosure, awareness and management of environmental risks and demonstration of best practices associated with environmental leadership, such as setting ambitious and meaningful targets.

"Being a member of the CDP A list is the best signal we can send to investors, customers and other key stakeholders that we are taking the climate challenge seriously and continuously improving in the field of climate protection. We are simply on the right track", says Helle Herk-Hansen. 

CDP’s annual environmental disclosure and scoring process is widely recognized as the gold standard of corporate environmental transparency. The Climate Change A list is published by CDP each year.
