CAREL celebrates holiday season with an improvement in its sustainability performance

CAREL has ended 2022 with further recognition of its journey towards excellence, also in terms in sustainability performance. The company has in fact received a “B-” rating from CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project), the global non-profit organisation that monitors the performance of businesses in the fight against climate change.

In 2022 CAREL achieved important objectives in the area of sustainability: after having improved its rating in the MSCI ESG Ratings assessment, receiving an “AA”, and having received a silver medal from ECOVADIS, the Group has also been recognised for its efforts in the fight against climate change by CDP, improving its rating from “C” to “B-” and entering the “Management” category, i.e. the group of companies that work on managing their environmental impact.

CAREL, which has energy-efficient innovation as one of its hallmarks, is currently working on defining its total carbon footprint (including “Scope 3” emissions) in order to define a medium and long-term plan towards carbon neutrality.

Francesco Nalini, CEO of the CAREL Group, and Carlotta Rossi Luciani, member of the Board of Directors in charge of ESG, jointly commented: “The Group’s excellent performance in terms of ESG adds a new element with the improved score in the CDP rating. The constant recognition of the efforts made and resources deployed over the past few years to improve our ESG profile makes all the women and men working at CAREL particularly proud and is a strong incentive to always do better by striving for excellence.”
