Leonardo joins the "Climate A List 2020" of the international non-profit organization CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project), the list that includes the world's leading companies - out of the more than 5.800 analyzed - in the fight against climate change, drawn up on information base on environmental impacts, risks and opportunities, requested by over 515 investors, representing $ 106 trillion in assets under management.
The promotion to the highest step of the evaluation rewards Leonardo's commitment to the reduction of emissions, the mitigation of risks related to climate change and for having implemented a strategy that is attentive to the environment, in particular through research and the implementation of technologies innovative: from the use of advanced materials for more sustainable air mobility, to solutions for satellite observation and monitoring of the Earth.
"Entering the A List rewards Leonardo's concrete commitment in combating climate change by managing possible risks and seizing the opportunities offered by the most advanced technologies", commented Alessandro Profumo, Leonardo's CEO. "From our industrial sites to innovative solutions for the mitigation and adaptation to climate change, that of Leonardo is a commitment to sustainable growth, for people and for the planet ".
Sustainability finds ample space in the strategic plan Be Tomorrow - Leonardo 2030, which intends to promote a renewed approach to the issue, considering business, governance, social impacts and environmental factors in a long-term perspective and in line with the sustainable development goals of the UN 2030 Agenda.
The inclusion in the top range of the CDP valuation further consolidates Leonardo's growth in terms of sustainability: in fact, in a few months, the Company has obtained the reconfirmation of the role of Industry Leader in the Aerospace & Defense sector in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices , and has also been recognized as a UN Global Compact Lead, a leading role in the international sustainability and cooperation initiative.
