APG|SGA: Good marks again for sustainability

In the climate ranking of the global environmental organization CDP, APG|SGA was once again awarded an A- grade for its strategy and its implementation this year.

In the annual rating of the environmental organization CDP on the transparency and quality of climate protection reporting, APG|SGA was awarded the very good grade A- for the second time in a row in 2023. Despite the constantly increasing requirements of the CDP standards, APG|SGA was able to confirm its leadership status and even increase its overall score.

The increase can be attributed, among other things, to increased engagement in the supply chain and the analysis of climate risks in the context of scientific climate scenarios. The positive assessment reflects the targeted implementation of APG|SGA's corporate social responsibility strategy (CSR strategy).

Using a comprehensive questionnaire, the CDP assesses annually whether companies are making an effective contribution to limiting the global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial levels. The disclosure and assessment process of the non-profit organization CDP is recognized as the "gold standard" for transparency in environmental performance and corporate responsibility. The CDP uses a detailed and independent methodology to assess participating companies and rates them on a scale from A (best result) to D-. It takes into account criteria such as completeness of disclosure, awareness and management of environmental risks, and the exercise of best practices related to environmental leadership, accompanied by the setting of ambitious, meaningful and fact-based targets.
