Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)
It is an independent not-for-profit body engaged in reducing GHG emissions and advancing the sustainable use of water by businesses and cities.
ENDESA is taking part in three initiatives of the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP): CDP Climate Change, CDP Supply Chain and CDP Water.
- CDP Climate Change
ENDESA has been awarded a leading position in the CDP Performance Leadership Index 2015 (CDLI) as a result of its actions to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the business risks entailed by climate change. This initiative is backed by 822 institutional investors with USD 95,000 million in assets.
For this reason, ENDESA has been included in the “2015 Climate Change CDP, Iberia Edition” report together with the organisations rated within the top 10% of the CDP Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI). This index only includes those companies that comply with the maximum score criteria defined by CDP
The companies at the top of this index indicate a high level of transparency in information disclosure related to climate change, providing investors with a level of comfort to assess the corporate responsibility and preparation for the change in market demands and the new regulatory requirements concerning emissions limitations.
- CDP Supply Chain
ENDESA has involved its suppliers in completing the CDP Supply Chain survey since 2010 and this year the completion rate obtained was 83% compared with an average of 51% obtained by the companies taking part in this initiative
It should be noted that 90% of ENDESA’s suppliers have set targets to reduce emissions and 89% integrate climate change into their business strategies.
- CDP Water
For the sixth year running, Endesa has adhered to the CDP Water Disclosure initiative, a global initiative which provides water and water management data from the world’s largest corporations to inform the global marketplace about investment risk and commercial opportunities and to guide investors towards the sustainable use of this resource
