OUTOTEC OYJ PRESS RELEASE, OCTOBER 22, 2010 AT 9.30 AM
Outotec the third best Nordic company in Carbon Disclosure Project
Outotec is ranked the third best Nordic company by Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) in the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index, which is a key component of CDP's annual Nordic 200 Report. The Index highlights companies with the most complete and professional approach to corporate governance in respect of climate change disclosure practices. Outotec's score in the CDP ranking was 90/100.
CDP's analysis is based on a questionnaire focused on greenhouse gas emissions, emissions reduction targets and risks and opportunities associated with climate change. Companies are scored on their climate change disclosure and high scores indicate good internal data management and understanding of climate change related issues affecting the company. Outotec participated in the CDP for the first time last year and was commended for its climate change disclosure.
"I am very proud of Outotec's excellent score in Carbon Disclosure Project and our ranking amongst the best Nordic companies. We have also clearly improved our reporting since last year. Sustainable technology has been Outotec's core principle throughout our existence. We develop process technologies that enable sustainable use of natural resources. Providing clean and energy efficient technologies to our customers is our way of mitigating the climate change", said Pertti Korhonen, CEO of Outotec.
