ÖBB Rail Cargo Group (RCG) has achieved a respectable result with its participation. The CDP – Carbon Disclosure Project – is a non-profit organisation which rates companies, cities, regions, and countries according to their environmental transparency and environmental measures. The rating is considered the gold standard of environmental reporting around the world. CDP data is used by investors, companies, policymakers, academics, and the media to learn about companies’ climate-related data and strategies.
The CDP aims to encourage companies and local authorities to disclose their environmental data, such as harmful greenhouse gas emissions and water consumption. The CDP collects data and information that are crucial for the assessment via questionnaires that are completed voluntarily.
In its role as a sustainable logistics backbone of the European economy, RCG also completed the extensive questionnaire last year and submitted all climate-relevant figures to the CDP. RCG was awarded a C rating – a respectable result for its first submission. We aim to continue to improve our results in the future with better data and climate protection measures.
Alongside the CDP rating, RCG is also assessed by other rating bodies such as ESG or EcoVadis.
