Constantia has earned a place on CDP’s A List

January 26, 2020 Off By Sebastian Reisig

CDP’s annual environmental disclosure and scoring process is widely recognized as the gold standard of corporate environmental transparency. In 2019, over 525 investors with over US$96 trillion in assets and 125 major purchasers with US$3.6 trillion in procurement spend requested companies to disclose data on environmental impacts, risks and opportunities through CDP’s platform and over 8,400 companies responded.

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.

Out of the thousands of companies that disclose their environmental data through CDP, Constantia Flexibles is in the top 2% that made it to the CDP A List – recognizing us as corporate leaders on climate action through transparency:
