Ratings & Indices

Corporate Responsibility is verifiable. In its young history LANXESS has consequently improved its sustainable profile. The inclusion in sustainability indices and rankings confirms our commitment to sustainable development taking account of the demands of economics, ecology and society in equal measure.

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 2017 LANXESS again achieved the best rating in the evaluation and is thus listed on the CDP's Climate A List. With this list, CDP recognizes the efforts of companies to reduce emissions, reduce climate risks and promote a low-emission economy. As part of the Climate A List, LANXESS is one of the top five percent of several thousand companies surveyed by the initiative. A" is awarded to companies that stand out in terms of transparency and completeness of reporting as well as actual climate protection performance.
