Cargotec top-ranked in climate change by CDP
Cargotec has received an A- score in the international non-profit CDP's climate change programme, recognising the company’s efforts in climate action. This achievement puts us in the Leadership category of ranked companies.
Companies with an A- score in climate change show environmental leadership and disclose their actions on mitigating climate change and developing low-carbon solutions. Cargotec’s rating improved from a B score in 2021.
"We are proud of this recognition of our ambitious climate work, and it's wonderful to see that our increased focus on climate action is reflected in the improved score," says Päivi Koivisto, VP Sustainability at Cargotec. "We have chosen to set ambitious climate targets for ourselves and they are embedded in our performance targets - it's safe to say that climate action is integrated into our strategy. We can see that sustainability is a strong driver of growth in our industry, and we have a great opportunity to help solve our customers' challenges in this area, especially through our eco portfolio offering."
Cargotec’s science-based target, which is also part of the strategic performance targets for our core businesses, is to reduce value chain emissions by at least 50% by 2030. We also aim to double the growth of our eco portfolio sales compared to traditional products.
