CDP Climate Rating

The CDP rating of DB Group was downgraded in 2023. The drivers for the change from 2022 include increased requirements (in leadership) and a change in scoring methods.

This result places us in the highest “leadership” category and among the best 6 % in the climate change questionnaire. 

In its annual rating process, CDP uses a detailed and independent methodology that assigns grades from A to D-. It evaluates the level of transparency and disclosure of climate data, awareness and management of environmental risks, and best practices related to environmental leadership, such as setting ambitious targets.

On behalf of its members - investors, companies and cities - the London-based non-profit international rating organization CDP annually collects environmental data from companies, assesses their climate protection activities and transparency in reporting, and is recognized as the gold standard for corporate environmental transparency.

The Climate A list can be found on the CDP website.
