Kao is proud to have made the 2019 CDP “A List” for corporate leadership in water security and climate change, recognizing Kao for sustainable management of water resources and environmental transparency and performance. Kao is one of a small number of high-performing companies out of thousands that were scored. The recognition is based on the data submitted by Kao through CDP’s 2019 water security and climate change questionnaire.
CDP’s annual environmental disclosure and scoring process is widely recognized as the gold standard of corporate environmental transparency. A detailed and independent methodology is used by CDP to assess these companies, allocating a score of A to D- based on the comprehensiveness of disclosure, awareness and management of environmental risks and demonstration of best practices associated with environmental leadership, such as setting ambitious and meaningful targets.
