(Petrobras, 14.Dec.2022) — Petrobras has become part of the list of global companies that stand out in climate change mitigation actions, as announced by the international organization CDP, formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project. The company received an A- rating in recognition of its good practices on this topic and as demonstrated last year.
The CDP assessment is carried out annually, through a questionnaire sent to companies listed on the main stock exchanges in the world, analyzing the aspects related to carbon and climate management, water security and forest management.
In 2022, Petrobras reached the A- classification in the climate theme, the last year in which the company obtained this recognition was in 2016. In addition, the company maintained its A- rating in water safety. These classifications mean that Petrobras is recognized as a leader, a category that is reserved only for a selected group of companies that demonstrate the best practices in the treatment of environmental issues.
This is another recognition of Petrobras’ efforts and initiatives in the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) aspects. The company remains committed to accelerating the decarbonization of its processes and products and is committed to always acting ethically and transparently, with safety in its operations and respect for people and the environment, delivering sustainable results for a society in transition.
Based in London, the CDP is a global reference for investors in providing quality information on risks and opportunities associated with reducing greenhouse gas, climate, water safety and forest management emissions. Currently, the CDP is used by more than 680 investors, whose assets total more than US$130tn.
