GEODIS recognized for its actions to mitigate climate impact

CDP (formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project) has awarded GEODIS an “A-” rating for 2019. The Group is now categorized as a ‘Leader’ in environmental care.

This result recognizes the global logistics provider as a Leader that implements the relevant actions to effectively reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, reflecting outstanding environmental management. The achievement is encouraging given that only 6% of companies assessed by CDP from around the world have been rated “A –“ or higher.

“This score demonstrates that GEODIS places climate and carbon issues at the focal point of its business strategy. Our group has set itself the objective of reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2030 and supports its customers in the implementation of solutions that are every more respectful to the environment.” says Marie-Christine Lombard, Chief Executive Office of GEODIS.

As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy and its commitment to control and reduce the impact of its operations on the environment, GEODIS has responded to the CDP Supply Chain Program questionnaire each year since 2014. CDP is an international, non-profit organization that manages the largest environmental disclosure system for companies and cities. Through respondents’ self-reported declarations, it evaluates practical measures undertaken, such as reporting processes or greenhouse gas emissions reductions programs in the supply chain and rates the companies accordingly.
