Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) – CDLI
As an international investor initiative and non-profitmaking organization, the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) has the goal of creating transparency with respect to greenhouse gas emissions. To do so, the CDP annually collects data from thousands of companies worldwide on CO2 emissions, reduction strategies and objectives and climate-related risks and opportunities, and thus possesses the world's largest dataset of this kind.
Through its annual participation LANXESS too demonstrates its transparent approach to the issue of emissions. Since 2012 the CDP has included LANXESS in the Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) twice (2012, 2013).
In 2016, the company received an “A” score and will be listed with immediate effect as one of 193 companies around the world in the CDP’s “Climate A List.” LANXESS is thus among the top 9 percent of the more than 2,100 companies that took part in the initiative. An “A” score is given to companies that particularly distinguish themselves with regard to the transparency and completeness of their reporting and to their actual climate protection activities.
Furthermore, LANXESS was named “Sector Leader” in the Energy & Materials industry and is thus among the top 11 percent of companies in the Germany, Austria and Switzerland region. In an index comparison, the specialty chemicals company was rated among the top 4 percent of MDAX companies as an “Index Leader.”
LANXESS also improved the most among all participating German companies compared with the previous year. The company was therefore additionally named “Best Improver Germany.”
