Imperial Brands awarded ‘A’ score for action to address climate change

Imperial has again been given an ‘A’ score by global environmental non-profit charity CDP for its efforts to counter climate change.

The company’s place on CDP’s climate change ‘A’ List has been secured for a third successive year, further underscoring Imperial’s leadership status in environmental transparency and action.

Imperial is one of only 200 companies included on the climate change ‘A’ List out of almost 12,000 that were scored.

The business has been recognized for its actions to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks and transition to a lower-carbon economy, based on the data reported through CDP’s 2021 climate change questionnaire.

CDP’s annual environmental disclosure and scoring process is acknowledged as the gold standard of corporate environmental transparency. CDP scores companies based on a methodology covering disclosure, awareness, management and leadership. 

Earlier this year Imperial committed to reach net-zero global emissions by 2040 in line with the aim to limit global warning to 1.5°C. In addition, the business was recognised as a 2021 Climate Leader by the Financial Times in its first ever ranking of actions taken by European businesses.

Tony Dunnage, Global ESG Director at Imperial, said: “We have a good track record in minimising our impact on the environment, and are committed to rapidly stepping up the decisive actions required to combat climate change.”

For details of our approach to reducing our environmental impact see the Sustainability section of our website.
