Using an annual survey of the world’s largest companies, the CDP compiles information about climate risks and low-carbon opportunities connected with climate change. One of these companies is Aena which has been recognised for its efforts with an A rating, the highest awarded by the CDP and above the average for Europe and its industry.
The CDP is an international not-for-profit charity which promotes sustainable economies. It shares environmental information from leading companies to enable investment decisions that embrace climate change as a strategic factor.
The Carbon Disclosure Project scores companies on a scale from the highest level A to the lowest level D and which is comparable among firms in the same region or industry. Last year, over 8,300 companies worldwide answered the survey and only 179 achieved an A rating, seven of which are Spanish including Aena.
This means that Aena’s rating is higher than last year’s despite the fact that the CPD has made the standards in this year’s report more challenging. This result underlines the value of Aena’s climate change strategy which is designed to cut emissions, mitigate risks in the use of energy and natural resources and build a low-carbon economy by seizing the opportunities afforded by the transition to a sustainable economy.
Aena moves forward with its strategy to fight climate change
On World CO2 Emissions Reduction Day celebrated today, Aena’s participation in the CDP report and in other initiatives such as the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme, which acknowledges the efforts of airports to manage and reduce their CO2 emissions, confirms the company’s steadfast commitment in its fight against climate change and also its transparency in its relationship with its surroundings in order to share quality information with all its stakeholders.
Aena has mapped out a strategy to combat climate change which places special emphasis on making our operations as energy efficient as possible and promoting the use of energy from renewable sources while minimizing CO2 emissions. It also extends the reach of environmental actions over and above legal obligations by implementing innovative solutions.
