Vaisala has been recognized as a leader for the depth and quality of climate-change data it has disclosed to investors and the global marketplace through CDP, the international NGO that drives sustainable economies. Vaisala has thereby been awarded with a position on the Nordic Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) as well as on the A List of the Global Climate Performance Leadership Index (Global CPLI), a global index of companies demonstrating a superior approach to climate change mitigation.
This is the first time Vaisala is included in the CDLI and the CPLI indexes. Organizations graded within the top 10% constitute the CDLI. Following an evaluation, the company earned 99 points out of the maximum 100.
“Our aim is to increase productivity for renewable energy sources and mitigate risk across several industries. For Vaisala, this creates new business and growth opportunities, as the need for cleaner energy and resource efficiency increases. Making sure we run a clean operation ourselves is a must, of course, but the real excitement lies in the advanced technologies that we create and deliver, which help make societies safer and more efficient,” says Vaisala CEO and President Kjell Forsén.
Disclosure to CDP’s climate change program is at the request of 767 investors who represent more than $92 trillion in assets, which is around a third of the world’s invested capital. The number of investors who rely on the CDP to help them better understand the economic risks and opportunities that climate change presents to the companies in their portfolio has increased on an annual basis. The growing consensus that accountability for contributions to climate change is a business imperative is further supported by the increasing number of businesses using CDP to report their climate change impacts.
