German multinational ranks among top ten companies for its ecological commitment

The Hamburg-based Beiersdorf AG is among ten companies to have been awarded a “Triple A" rating from the non-profit organization Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) in London, a press release said Tuesday (February 6, 2024). Around 21,000 companies had submitted data on their efforts towards climate protection, deforestation and water security for 2023. 

Beiersdorf's commitment to sustainability 

Vincent Warnery, CEO of Beiersdorf AG, remarked: "It confirms our strong efforts to transform our product portfolio and decarbonize the entire company.” Beiersdorf AG is focusing on both ingredients and the packaging of its skincare products in line with its sustainability agenda "Care Beyond Skin". The company is aiming for an absolute CO2 reduction of 30 per cent by 2025, according to Jean-François Pascal, Vice President Sustainability. Beiersdorf is also helping small farmers to cultivate palm oil to achieve sustainable forest management. 

CDP honours commitment 

CDP began compiling the ranking in 2003 prompting more and more companies to disclose their sustainability data. Only companies that meet strict climate protection criteria as well as forest and water management are awarded the top "Triple A" rating. The ranking for 2023 also includes the French cosmetics manufacturer L'Oréal, the Japanese chemicals and cosmetics company KAO Corporation and seven other companies that scored highly in all three areas. Around 400 have been named on its 2023 A List for disclosing actionable, high quality environmental data in at least one area. The awards will be presented on March 26,2024 in Paris.
