ISG maintains industry-leading climate change score

ISG has maintained its leadership status in tackling climate change by scoring an ‘A-‘ in the recently released CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project) climate change programme scores.

Every year, international, not-for-profit organisation, CDP - with the support of investors representing $US100 trillion - engages businesses to respond to its climate change questionnaire.

The aim of the programme is to enable better-informed decision-making on climate action.

The score places ISG in the top 21% of companies in the sector, after achieving a score significantly higher than the industry average of ‘C’.

The score demonstrates ISG’s commitment to transparent reporting, reducing greenhouse gas emissions in line with its 2020 Sustainability Vision, and its corporate goal of improving operational efficiency.

More than 5,600 companies across 71 states and regions disclose information to the CDP, generating the world’s largest database of corporate environmental information, covering climate, water and forest-risk commodities.

This is the fourth year ISG has responded to CDP, having fully responded to the questionnaire as a Group and reported global emissions from office and site energy consumption and business mileage.

Commenting on the CDP score, Philippa Stone, group head of sustainability at ISG, said: “We are delighted to maintain our industry-leading CDP score of ‘A-‘.

“In line with our 2020 Sustainability Vision, we are working hard to limit our greenhouse gas emissions and reduce our impact on climate change while increasing operational efficiency.”
