- The Company, for the first time, is placed at the top of CDP’s (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) assessment and this highlights Leonardo’s commitment to tackle climate change
- Alessandro Profumo: “Joining the ‘A List’ rewards Leonardo’s concrete commitment in fighting against climate change by managing possible risks and seizing the opportunities offered by the most advanced technologies.”
Leonardo joins the “Climate A List 2020” of the non-profit international organisation CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project), the list that includes world leading companies – out of 5,800-plus companies analysed – in the fight against climate change. The list has been rated by disclosure on impacts, risks, and opportunities that are linked to the environment, and requested by more than 515 investors, that represent over 106 trillion dollars in assets under management.
The promotion to the top ranking of the evaluation recognizes Leonardo’s commitment to emission reduction, the mitigation of risks linked to climate change, and for the undertaking a careful environmental strategy. With particular attention to the Company’s research and the implementation of innovative technologies: from the use of advanced materials for more sustainable air mobility, to solutions for satellite Earth observation and monitoring.
“Joining the ‘A List’ rewards Leonardo’s concrete commitment in fighting against climate change by managing possible risks and seizing the opportunities offered by the most advanced technologies”, stated Alessandro Profumo, CEO of Leonardo. “From our industrial plants to innovative solutions for mitigation and adaptation to climate change, Leonardo is committed to sustainable growth for people and for the Planet”.
Sustainability is integral to the Be Tomorrow – Leonardo 2030 strategic plan that promotes a renewed approach to the issue by considering business, governance, social impacts and environmental factors, from a long-term perspective and in-line with the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN 2030 Agenda.
The inclusion in the CDP’s top ranking further consolidates Leonardo’s growth in terms of sustainability. Recently, the Company obtained confirmation again of its role as an Industry Leader in the Aerospace & Defence sector within the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices and has also been recognised as UN Global Compact Lead, with a leading role in the sustainability and international cooperation initiative.
