TORONTO, Nov. 25, 2015 /CNW/ - Celestica Inc. (NYSE, TSX: CLS), a global
leader in the delivery of end-to-end product lifecycle solutions, today
announced it has been identified as a Canadian leader for the quality of climate
change related information that it has disclosed to the global
marketplace through CDP, the international not-for-profit that drives sustainable economies. It
is therefore awarded a position on the Canada Climate Disclosure
Leadership Index (CDLI), released today in the Canada edition of CDP's
annual global climate change report. The news comes three weeks ahead
of COP21, the UN climate change conference, when national leaders meet
to agree a global deal to reduce carbon emissions and limit temperature
Celestica has earned its position on the index by disclosing
high-quality carbon emissions and energy data through CDP's climate
change program. The reported data has been independently assessed
against CDP's scoring methodology and marked out of 100. Those
organizations graded within the top 10% constitute the CDLI. Celestica
has scored 98.
"We're very pleased to be included in CDP's Climate Disclosure
Leadership Index," says Rob Mionis, President and Chief Executive
Officer, Celestica. "Transparency and continuous improvement in
environmental performance are important elements of our sustainability
strategy and demonstrate to our stakeholders that we are responsible
corporate citizens in the regions in which we operate."
At the request of 822 investors who represent US$95 trillion in assets,
thousands of companies submit annual climate disclosures to CDP. Top
scores indicate a high level of transparency in the disclosure of
climate change-related information, providing investors with a level of
comfort to assess corporate accountability and preparedness for
changing market demands and emissions regulation.
Paul Dickinson, executive chairman and co-founder of CDP says: "As the
world looks beyond the Paris climate change negotiations and prepares
for a low carbon future, reliable information about how companies are
responding to the transition will be ever more valuable. For this
reason we congratulate those businesses that have achieved a position
on CDP's Climate Disclosure Leadership Index."
CDP's annual global climate change report, along with the climate scores
of all companies publicly taking part in CDP's climate change program
this year, is available on CDP's website.
