CDP manages a platform that gathers data on greenhouse gas emissions from major corporations around the world. The data reported through CDP is used by a global network of currently 822 investors representing investments over $100 trillion. The information provides detail on a company´s climate strategy, the goals that are adopted to reduce emissions from various direct and indirect sources, and to what extent the goals were achieved over time.
One of the goals Schindler set itself is to reduce CO2 emissions from its vehicle fleet by 30% by the end of 2016 compared to the 2012 baseline. Another one includes the long-standing focus to provide energy-efficient elevators and escalators to our customers.
Receiving recognition for the efforts in crafting a more sustainable future is a great honor. Schindler remains committed to provide optimal mobility solutions in response to global urbanization and climate change.
