APG|SGA once again receives an A- grade for transparency in climate protection reporting
APG|SGA was awarded a very good A- for the transparency and quality of its climate protection reporting in the 2023 CDP scores – the second year in a row it has made the environmental organisation's A List. Despite the ever-increasing demands of the CDP standards, APG|SGA was able to confirm its leadership status and even improve its overall score. Among other things, this was thanks to increased involvement in the supply chain, as well as analysis of climate risks in the context of scientific climate scenarios. The positive assessment reflects the company's targeted implementation of its corporate social responsibility strategy (CSR strategy).
Every year, CDP uses a comprehensive questionnaire to check whether companies are effectively helping to limit the global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The disclosure and scoring process managed by CDP, a non-profit organisation, is the gold standard for transparent environmental performance and corporate responsibility. CDP uses a detailed, independent methodology to assess participating companies and score these on a scale of A (best result) to D-. It considers such criteria as extent of the disclosure, awareness and management of environmental risks, and implementation of best practices in environmental leadership, along with the setting of ambitious, meaningful and science-based targets. The CDP questionnaire benchmark is developed and raised every year to ensure that even high-scoring companies continue to improve.
