) has been included in the 2013 CDP Global 500 Climate
Performance Leadership Index (CPLI) and CDP Global 500 Climate
Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI). CDP is the only global
environmental disclosure system that studies responses of the
world's largest public companies to a changing climate, and
publishes reports on the same.
The annual CDP indices consider those companies listed on the
FTSE Global Equity Index Series (Global 500) which undertake
steps to reduce carbon emission and nullify the risk of climate
change. Furthermore, companies who take up the onus to disclose
information regarding climate change are also recognized by way
of being included in the CDP indices.
Ecolab was one of the only 56 global companies named in the 2013
CPLI, and one of only 60 global companies named in the 2013 CDLI.
Management acknowledged the honor of being accredited as a global
leader by CDP. The recognition marks the company's honest
disclosure practices and its continued commitment toward the
improvement of global environmental footprint. Going forward, it
seeks to continue its endeavor to meet sustainability goals in
more than one million locations worldwide.
Companies that are included in the Climate Disclosure Leadership
Index are showing greater concern towards corporate climate
accountability. They are also implementing high tech practices
for the measurement of greenhouse gas emissions and energy use,
and to introduce transparency in their climate change strategies.
This is a radical phenomenon, given that the entire world has
woken up to the grave issue of global warming and climate change.
