For the sixth consecutive year, BNY Mellon has been awarded a position on the Climate A List by CDP, the non-profit global environmental disclosure program.
The 2018 Climate A List is comprised of 127 global companies and is produced at the request of over 650 investors with over US$87 trillion in assets, and/or 115 major purchasing organizations with US$3.3 trillion in purchasing power. Thousands of companies submit annual climate disclosures to CDP for independent assessment against its scoring methodology.
BNY Mellon has been recognized for its actions in the last reporting year to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks and develop the low-carbon economy, based on its 2018 disclosure to CDP.
The Climate Change A List is published by CDP each year, alongside similar lists for leadership on protecting forests and water security.
The full methodology and criteria for the Climate Change A List are available on CDP’s website under ‘CDP scoring methodologies 2018’.
The 2018 CDP A List includes the CDP Supplier A List, which in previous years was released separately.
CDP is an international non-profit that drives companies and governments to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, safeguard water resources and protect forests. Voted number one climate research provider by investors and working with institutional investors with assets of US$87 trillion, we leverage investor and buyer power to motivate companies to disclose and manage their environmental impacts. Over 7,000 companies with over 50% of global market capitalization disclosed environmental data through CDP in 2018. This is in addition to the over 750 cities, states and regions who disclosed, making CDP’s platform one of the richest sources of information globally on how companies and governments are driving environmental change. CDP, formerly Carbon Disclosure Project, is a founding member of the We Mean Business Coalition. Visit http://www.cdp.net/ or follow us @CDP to find out more.
