BAM again highest ranked industrial company in Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index
Bunnik, the Netherlands, 16 December 2013 – For the second year Royal BAM Group is included in the Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI). The Index is prepared by CDP (formerly known as Carbon Disclosure Project). The announcement of the results of their annual research into climate change disclosure of the largest companies in the Benelux was released on line. BAM is ranked first in the category Industrials (2012: also first). In the overall ranking BAM climbed from third to second position with a score of 96 (out of 100; 2012: 93). As in last year, Philips achieved the highest score. BAM has been participating in the Carbon Disclosure Project since 2008.
CDP works with investors globally to advance the investment opportunities and reduce the risks posed by climate change by asking over 5,000 of the world’s largest companies to report their climate strategies, GHG emissions and energy use through CDP’s standardized format. 722 financial institutions with assets of US$87 trillion were signatories to the CDP 2013 climate change information request.
Earlier this month BAM was best in its sector for the Dutch Transparency Benchmark and in the Dutch Responsible Supply Chain Benchmark of VBDO. The recognition by CDP again confirms that BAM is successfully developing the position of the Group as a leading, sustainable construction company.
