The climate performance score is given as a banded score. Indicative descriptions of the bands follow and are for guidance only. The drivers of any individual company score may vary across a number of different indicators however the same key actions need to be demonstrated across all sectors and geographies. As such, data-users should read individual company responses to understand the context for each business. Care should be taken when comparing performance across companies.
Band A/A- (>85%)
Fully integrated climate change strategy driving significant reduction in emissions due to climate change initiatives. An "A" signifies that in addition to achieving a score of more than
85, the company has met the additional criteria for entry into the Climate Performance Leadership Index (see below). An "A-" signifies that the company has achieved the high score, but not met the additional criteria.
Band B (>60%)
Integration of climate change recognized as priority for strategy, not all initiatives fully established.
Band C (>40%)
Some activity on climate change with varied levels of integration of those initiatives into strategy.
Band D (>20%)
Limited evidence of mitigation or adaptation initiatives and no/limited strategy on climate change.
Band E (>0%)
Little evidence of initiatives on carbon management potentially due to companies just beginning to take action on climate change.
No performance band is allocated below a disclosure of 50, as there would be insufficient information on which to base a performance score.
