Imperial Brands named on CDP's climate 'A' List for fourth successive year

Imperial has again been recognised for actions taken to combat climate change and its impacts.

The business has been awarded a Climate ‘A’ score by global environmental non-profit charity CDP for a fourth successive year, further underlining its strong track record on environmental transparency and action.

CDP runs the global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, states and regions to manage their environmental impacts. It collects climate-related data on behalf of around 600 institutional investor signatories, helping companies to measure their impacts, set ambitious targets and demonstrate progress.

Only 283 companies – a mere 1.5% of the 18,600-plus businesses making climate disclosures to CDP this year – were included on the Climate Change ‘A’ List.

Imperial has committed to reaching science-based Net Zero emissions by 2040 through a five-step approach outlined in our 2022 Annual Report. Earlier this year, the business was named as a Supplier Engagement Leader by CDP for a third successive year, and as a Climate Leader by the Financial Times.

Tony Dunnage, Global ESG Director at Imperial, said: “There is no other path, than for all companies, all governments, and all of society to pull together and get behind the decarbonisation commitments that have been made.

"Our ‘A' score reflects our commitment to reducing our impact on the climate throughout our value chain, and we know that we can make a meaningful contribution.”

Imperial was also rated A- by CDP for Water Security – an improvement on the 'B' rating achieved a year earlier – and a commendable 'C' for its first response in a number of years to the Forests survey.
