Developed by Maplecroft, a leading source of global risk analysis, the Climate Innovation Indexes (CIIs) are three indexes that rank the top 360 U.S. companies on the basis of climate innovation and carbon management programs. The Maplecroft CII Leaders index recognizes the 100 top performing companies in their survey.
“The challenges and opportunities resulting from climate change require bold commitments and innovative solutions, and we are honored to once again be recognized by Maplecroft for our efforts,” said Cynthia Curtis, vice president and chief sustainability officer, CA Technologies. “Through collaboration with our customers and partners, and leveraging our technologies and committed employees, we’re able to reduce our energy consumption and increase operating efficiencies and help other organizations do the same.”
“Climate change will affect business in unexpected ways, such as altering demand for existing products based on their climate-related impacts and by driving demand for innovative sourcing, manufacturing, logistics, usage and recycling,” said Dr. Kevin Franklin, director, Maplecroft. “With growing legislation and regulation in the U.S. around emissions and climate change disclosures, companies must innovate or be left behind. The CIIs favor front-runners that are engaging proactively to shape the future growth environment, that have clear efficient business processes and robust governance/business models.”
The Maplecroft CIIs help investors to identify the most resilient and innovative companies with the best long-term growth prospects. Highlighted firms are innovating products, services, processes or partnerships in order to reshape markets and position themselves to succeed in the climate-changed, low-carbon environment of the future. Since the CIIs conception in 2009, the firms at the top have consistently outperformed their peers and competitors, as demonstrated by the index’s performance.
