We stand at a historic crossroads. With the world facing converging crises in climate, nature, the economy and public health, these must be tackled together with systemic change. We announce this year’s A List against this backdrop.
These 300+ companies are leading the way to a more sustainable future.
The business world shows growing environmental awareness, despite the unprecedented challenges faced in 2020.
By scoring companies from D- to A, we take them on a journey through disclosure to awareness, management, and finally to leadership. Our scoring measures the comprehensiveness of disclosure, awareness and management of environmental risks and best practices associated with environmental leadership, such as setting ambitious and meaningful targets.
CDP is constantly evolving our disclosure and scoring system in response to market needs and the rising urgency of the environmental challenges.

CDP scoring drives corporate transparency
and helps to guide, incentivize and assess environmental action. In 2020, a
record-breaking 9,600+ companies disclosed through CDP – 14% more than last
year, and 70% more than when the Paris Agreement was signed. Disclosing
companies represent over 50% of global market capitalization.
CDP’s questionnaires are fully aligned with the recommendations of the TCFD .

Companies who are requested to disclose their data and fail to do so, or fail to provide sufficient information to CDP to be evaluated will receive an F. An F does not indicate a failure in environmental stewardship.
