Power management company Eaton was recently named to the Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) by environmental non-profit CDP. This marks the sixth year Eaton has received a position on the CDP's S&P 500 CDLI in recognition of the depth and quality of its climate-change data disclosure.
"More than a responsibility, Eaton regards sustainability as fundamental to our business and pivotal to our future success," said Harold Jones, Eaton's senior vice president of environment, health and safety. "Our inclusion in the CDLI demonstrates the progress we're making to be transparent in our effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, water and energy consumption, and eliminate landfill waste."
Eaton global facilities adhere to one set of standards, such as carbon emissions, energy and water consumption, and waste treatment, and are united to help customers manage power more efficiently and safely by deploying the company's energy-efficient products and technologies.
"The need for disclosure of corporate climate-change impacts and strategies to reduce them has never been greater," said Paul Simpson, chief executive officer of CDP. "We congratulate those businesses that have achieved a position on CDP's S&P 500 Climate Disclosure Leadership Index. These companies are responding to the ever-growing demand for environmental accountability and helping to inspire others to follow suit."
An international not-for-profit organization, CDP provides the only global system for companies and cities to measure, disclose, manage and share vital environmental information. The organization works with market forces, including 767 institutional investors with assets of $92 trillion, to motivate companies to disclose their impacts on the environment and natural resources and to take action to reduce them.
