National Grid wins recognition for transparency over climate change and CO2 emissions
National Grid wins recognition for transparency over climate change and CO2 emissions

For the third year in a row National Grid has been awarded a place as a FTSE 350 leader by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).

Being recognised by the CDP is a great achievement for National Grid.

“By benchmarking and tracking the amount of carbon dioxide we emit, we can not only monitor progress, but also set clear goals for the future.”

Stuart Bailey, Head of Sustainability and Climate Change, National Grid.

The company scored 99 out of a possible 100 for the high-quality of its carbon emissions and energy data, disclosed through the CDP’s climate change programme. This has led to National Grid being awarded a position on the UK FTSE 350 Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) for the third year running.

Thousands of companies submit annual reports to CDP but only organisations scoring within the top 10% gain a place on the index.

Stuart Bailey, Head of Sustainability and Climate Change at National Grid, said: “Being recognised as a FTSE 350 leader by the CDP is a great achievement for National Grid. It demonstrates our transparent approach and the in-depth detail we have provided about our carbon emissions.

“This is the third year running we have been awarded a position on CDLI and builds on the success we enjoyed last year. By benchmarking and tracking the amount of carbon dioxide we emit, we can not only monitor progress, but also set clear goals for the future,” Stuart added.
