Outotec recognized again in Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index
For the third consecutive year Outotec is included in the Nordic Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index, which highlights companies with the most professional approach to climate change disclosure practices. Outotec received 81 out of 100 points and was ranked among the top 10 percent of the 260 companies in CDP's annual Nordic Report published today.
CDP's analysis is based on greenhouse gas emissions, emission reduction targets as well as understanding of risks and opportunities associated with climate change. High scores indicate good internal data management and understanding of climate change related issues affecting the company. The index provides an evaluation tool for institutional investors and other stakeholders.
"We are again proud of this recognition in the CDP Leadership Index. With the mission 'Sustainable use of Earth's natural resources' we are committed to good governance, responsible business practices and transparency. As a global technology provider we can make a significant impact in mitigating climate change by improving the eco-efficiency of our customers' production processes. Through continuous R&D we further improve our proprietary, benchmark technologies enabling sustainable use of natural resources", says Pertti Korhonen, CEO of Outotec.
