Our environmental policy protects even those who will never become our customers. CGD was once again recognised by the Carbon Disclosure Project for its path in reducing carbon emissions and in mitigating the risks of climate change, thus having achieved the maximum score in the Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI).
This distinction was announced at the launch of CDP Iberia 125 Climate Change Report 2014, which tracks the performance of the 125 largest Iberian companies listed on the stock exchange, in response to climate change.
CGD has been answering the CDP questionnaire on a voluntary basis since 2009 (by not being listed on the stock exchange), and, for the 4th consecutive year, it achieved a prominent position in the lead, being the only company in the financial sector reaching 100 points in the CDP reporting scale, standing in a top position among the restricted group of the 11 best Iberian companies.
The ratings assigned by CDP are a tool for investors and other stakeholders with decision-maker powers to assess the readiness of companies for the new demands of the market and to assess the strength of their performances to reduce climate change impacts.

CGD takes great pride in these awards, which acknowledge the continuous improvement of the work that has been developed for quantifying, reducing and offsetting GHG emissions, thus becoming, and being recognised, as a world reference on this topic.
