Climate Action and Profitability: CDP S&P 500 Climate Change Report 2014

Sep 22, 2014
  • Description

This report shines a light on the link between strong climate change management and measures of financial performance and, at the very least, to put to rest the common misconception that taking action on climate change exacts a cost to profitability. Our data shows the opposite. This report presents the progress achieved by 70% of S&P 500 companies in integrating climate change risk management into strategic planning, taking action towards emissions reductions and demonstrating a long-term view of how to best manage the assets of shareholders.
