CDP India climate change report 2015
As many as 31 Indian companies have made it to a global list for disclosing climate change related information to their investors, including four corporates - ITC, Tata Steel, Tech Mahindra and Wipro - which have attained a perfect score of 100. According to the annual Climate Change Report by global NGO CDP, the number of qualifying Indian companies in this year's Climate Disclosure Leadership Index has increased to 31 from 23 last year, registering a jump of 35% . The constant improvement in the ranking of Indian companies in disclosing vital climate change information to the world offers good momentum, especially coming at a time when countries are gearing up for a global agreement at the upcoming Paris climate meetings. Meanwhile, no Indian company got featured in the global 2015 Climate A List, which comprises companies identified as 'A grade' for their actions to mitigate climate change. However, despite this encouraging uptrend, there were fewer companies in the top performance bands. This could be due to technical issues which we hope to address with the companies in the coming years," the report said. Nearly 2,000 companies submitted information to be independently assessed against CDP's scoring methodology.
