Russia’s aluminium producer Rusal has been awarded an ‘A’ climate rating of the international organization Carbon Disclosure Project.
Following the company’s annual assessment by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), Rusal received an upgrade to the A-rating in response to its effective implementation of its strategy to reduce emissions, manage climate risks and ensure transparent communications in this area.
“The CDP A-rating is testament to the consistent efforts that Rusal is making in the field of responsible attitude towards climate change. By improving our rating, we are increasing the competitiveness of our products as the CDP report is highly regarded by the world’s most prominent customer companies and investors when purchasing products and making investment decisions,” said Rusal’s CEO Evgenii Nikitin. “The carbon footprint of our products is one of the lowest in the world, and we continue to implement the best international practices in the field of sustainable development,” he continued.
