STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, the international not-for-profit organization CDP named Pitney Bowes (NYSE:PBI) to the 2015 “A List” for Climate Change Transparency. One of only five firms in the industrial sector to achieve the ranking, Pitney Bowes scored 99 out of 100 for disclosure of high quality carbon emissions and energy data.
The announcement is timely as COP21, the UN climate change conference, convenes in Paris, France November 30 – December 11, 2015. National leaders will meet on a global deal to reduce carbon emissions and limit global temperature warming. Disclosures from the world’s largest listed companies reveal the extent to which corporations have shifted their strategies over the past five years to become part of the solution to the climate challenge.
“As the world looks beyond the Paris climate change negotiations and prepares for a low carbon future, reliable information about how companies are responding to the transition will be ever more valuable,” said Paul Dickinson, Executive Chairman and Co-Founder of CDP. “For this reason, we congratulate those businesses that have achieved a position on CDP’s Climate Disclosure Leadership Index.”
“Building on a long tradition of corporate citizenship, we have developed smart, sustainable programs that leverage physical and digital technologies across our global operations and benefit clients, employees and communities,” said Daniel Goldstein, Chief Legal and Compliance Officer of Pitney Bowes. “It’s an honor to be recognized by CDP for our efforts to minimize the impact of climate change.”
CDP charts the changed corporate landscape over five years, comparing data from 1,997 companies in 2015 with 1,799 in 2010. Globally, companies are taking action and making investments to prepare for the transition to a low carbon economy.
