Imperial again highlighted as a leader in climate action
Imperial Brands has won continued recognition as a global leader for its engagement with suppliers on strategies to combat climate change.
The business has been included on the 2021 Supplier Engagement Leaderboard compiled by environmental non-profit organisation CDP.
This is the third successive year that Imperial has been named a Supplier Engagement Leader.
In December, Imperial maintained its position on CDP’s Climate ‘A List’ for its actions to cut emissions and mitigate climate risks.
Companies responding to the full version of the CDP climate change questionnaire also receive a Supplier Engagement Rating (SER). The companies with the best SER are highlighted as Supplier Engagement Leaders – which this year are the top 8% of companies to have made disclosures.
Tony Dunnage, Imperial’s Global ESG Director, said: “We are pleased to once again be recognised by CDP and we remain unrelenting in our focus on climate, in line with our commitment to reach net-zero global emissions by 2040.”
