Centrica leading in climate change disclosure

Rankings for action and disclosure on our environmental impact released by CDP. 

We’re proud that Centrica has once again been identified as a world leader for strategic action on climate change by CDP, an international NGO reporting to investors.

In results recently released, Centrica achieved a place on CDP’s prestigious ‘A List’ for our action and disclosure on climate change, based on our climate change reporting in 2019. We are one of only 10 companies in our sector to have attained the highest standard.

CDP’s annual environmental disclosure and scoring process is widely recognised as the gold standard of corporate environmental transparency.

Want to know more? In 2019 we introduced our ambitions to tackle climate change by 2030 through:

  • Helping our customers reduce emissions by 25%, by direct (3%) and indirect action (baseline: 2015)
  • Delivering 7GW of flexible, distributed and low carbon technologies as well as provide system access and optimisation services
  • Demonstrating we are on track with Paris goals and develop a path to net zero by 2050

The Climate Change A List is published by CDP each year, alongside the A Lists for leadership on protecting forests and water security.
