GEODIS recognized for its actions to mitigate climate impact
CDP (formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project) awarded GEODIS a “B” rating for 2017, and for the second year in a row. This result recognizes GEODIS as a company that implements relevant actions to effectively reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, reflecting outstanding environmental management. Only 12% of the companies assessed by CDP in the world achieved an equivalent rating or higher.
“This score demonstrates that GEODIS places climate and carbon issues at the focal point of its business strategy. As a partner to its customers, our Group fosters the implementation of more environmentally-friendly solutions by recommending, every time it is possible, the use of modal shift and alternative energies” says Marie-Christine Lombard, Chief Executive Officer of GEODIS.
As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy and its commitment to control and reduce the impact of its operations on the environment, GEODIS has responded to the CDP Supply Chain Program questionnaire each year since 2014. CDP is an international non-profit organization that manages the largest environmental disclosure system for companies and cities. Through respondents’ self-reported declarations, it evaluates measures undertaken, such as reporting processes or greenhouse gas emissions reductions programs in the supply chain.
