Electrolux has been recognized for sustainability leadership by CDP, securing a place on its “A List” for tackling water security and an A- score for its work with climate change.
External recognition of our environmental leadership
We are one of a small number of high-performing companies out of over 3,000 that were scored on water security in 2021. Through significant demonstrable action to protect water resources, Electrolux is leading on corporate environmental ambition, action and transparency worldwide.
This is the second year in a row that Electrolux has secured a place on the CDP Water “A list” and is recognition of our ongoing work to tackle water security.
Our Leadership score (A-) on the CDP Climate questionnaire recognizes our ambitious work toward climate neutral operations by 2030 and a climate neutral value chain by 2050. In 2020, we reported a 70% reduction of carbon emissions in our operations and a 20% emissions reduction in the product use phase compared to 2015. In 2021, we joined the We Mean Business global call for climate action.
“We are proud to have our leadership on climate and water recognized by the CDP again this year,” says Vanessa Butani, VP Group Sustainability. “But at Electrolux, we want to do much more. We’re committed to reaching net zero carbon across our value chain and are working to promote water efficiency both in our operations and in the homes of consumers.”
CDP is an international non-profit that runs a global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, states and regions to manage their environmental impacts. Thousands of companies submit annual climate disclosures to CDP for independent assessment against its scoring methodology.
