The Swedish state-owned energy company, Vattenfall, has made it to CDP’s climate change “A” list 2020. Vattenfall has received this highest rating score for the second year in a row, a recognition for the company’s sustainability work and ambitious emission reduction targets.
Vattenfall is one of Europe’s largest producers and resellers of electricity and heat, with the goal to enable fossil-free living within one generation. In order to reach this goal, Vattenfall has developed a roadmap to fossil freedom and set ambitious emission reduction targets that pave way for sustainable actions. Some of the key activities by Vattenfall have included the establishment of a battery storage park in the Swedish city Uppsala and the company’s research work on flexible power markets.
Vattenfall has been given the “A” rating for its climate efforts for two consecutive years by CDP. CDP is a not-for-profit organisation that publishes an annual rating of companies tackling environmental issues. Only about 3% of the companies assessed by CDP have received the “A” rating in 2020.
