Business Avengers

Last year we joined forces with 16 other global companies under a new coalition called the “Business Avengers” to highlight the crucial role businesses have to play in hitting the targets of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.

We are proud champions of SDG 6, to ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.

About CDP A List

CDP’s annual environmental disclosure and scoring process is widely recognised as the gold standard of corporate environmental transparency. A detailed and independent methodology is used by CDP to assess these companies, allocating a score of A to D- based on the comprehensiveness of disclosure, awareness and management of environmental risks and demonstration of best practices associated with environmental leadership, such as setting ambitious and meaningful targets.

The full methodology and criteria for the Water Security A List are available on CDP’s website at: https://www.cdp.net/en/guidance/guidance-for-companies under ‘CDP scoring methodologies 2019’.
