Six Finnish companies have been listed as world leaders for their actions and strategies in response to climate change in the prestigious Climate A List by CDP. CDP is an international not-for-profit organization that drives sustainable economies. 

Climate A List identifies KONE, Neste, UPM, Valmet, Metsä Board and Stora Enso as leaders in their efforts and actions to combat climate change, during the past CDP reporting year. The Climate A List constitutes the baseline for corporate climate action and includes companies identified as leaders in the transition towards a low-carbon economy.

"We congratulate the 193 A List companies that are leading the charge towards our low carbon future. Companies are key actors in enabling the global economy to achieve its new climate goals, and the leadership of this group points the way for others to take bold action and capitalize on the many opportunities that await," says CDP's chief executive officer Paul Simpson.

CDP is an international, not-for-profit organization providing the only global system for companies and cities to measure, disclose, manage and share vital environmental information. CDP works with market forces, including 827 institutional investors with assets of USD 100 trillion, to motivate companies to disclose their impacts on the environment and natural resources and take action to reduce them.

Complete lists of CDP leaders along with the climate disclosures of all companies publicly taking part in CDP's climate change program this year are available on the CDP's website.
