Overview of Scoring

Climate Disclosure: A high climate disclosure score would indicate a comprehensive response. High reflect a company's clear consideration of business-specific risks and potential opportunities related to climate change and good internal data management practices for understanding GHG emissions. However, the disclosure score does not reflect a company’s actions on climate change mitigation.

Performance Band: Each company with a climate disclosure score above 50 are assigned a letter from A to E based the positive actions that the company has demonstrated through their CDP response. These include actions to promote climate change mitigation, adaptation and transparency.
