Elkem, a supplier of silicon-based advanced materials, also scored on CDP list this year. The company received an A on climate change, ranking in the top 5% of 5,800+ companies scored.
This is Elkem’s first year of CDP Climate reporting and it plans to report on CDP water security in 2021.
Michael Koenig, CEO of Elkem, said, “This A rating from CDP on climate is a strong confirmation of Elkem’s position as one of the world’s leading companies in the environmentally responsible manufacture of metals and materials. It also serves as an inspiration to continue improving further. Climate change mitigation and adaptation is important in our business strategy and essential to secure our license to operate. We also see that it is increasingly important for our stakeholders, including employees, customers, suppliers, governments and capital markets, and we will continue to step up our efforts as we position for the future."
