Immediate attention on all environmental challenges is needed to respond to the interlinked crises of climate change and the loss of nature and habitats.
Europe's businesses, investors and cities have an enormous role to play to transform our economy, financial system, and society. This year at the CDP Europe Awards 2022, we celebrated those leading the way through their environmental ambition in 2021.
Hear from the winners about what this recognition means to them - and how climate and nature have become integral parts of their strategies.
The A List showcases the companies leading on environmental transparency and action, based on their annual disclosure through CDP’s climate change, forests and water security questionnaires. Thousands of companies disclose through CDP at the request of investors and corporate buyers.
Businesses in Europe are showing increased environmental awareness. In 2021, the number of European companies receiving an A score account over 40% including six with a 'Triple A' score. These companies are taking real and concrete action to protect climate and nature and achieve the green transition. The full list of companies awarded an A in 2021 is available here.
Congratulations to the 11 European Double A companies, who are demonstrating environmental leadership through receiving A scores across two themes. The full list of companies awarded two A scores in 2021 is available here.
Congratulations to the 6 European Triple A companies, who are recognized for their efforts in tackling climate change, water security and deforestation. The full list of companies awarded three A scores in 2021 is available here.
The cities on the 2021 CDP Cities A List have received the highest rating for their efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, build resilience to the impacts of climate change and protect nature and biodiversity. They are setting an example of environmental action that we urgently need from other cities and national governments to safeguard the planet's resources, economy and citizens.
Congratulations to the 26 European cities on the 2021 CDP Cities A List. Cities have a significant role to play in achieving the green transition and are leading the way to a more sustainable future. The full list of cities receiving an A score is here.
