Feb. 10 /CSRwire/ - At the end of January, CDP published the results of its latest analysis of 8,361 companies worldwide in the climate change category. OMV was awarded the ranking of “Leadership A–” for the fourth time in a row, making it one of the top 14 companies in the global oil and gas sector.

Since 2011, OMV has been providing data to CDP for being evaluated on its transparency and performance with regard to climate change.

OMV CEO Rainer Seele: "Achieving a CDP climate score of "Leadership A–" for another year shows that our efforts to integrate sustainability into our business strategy, increase energy efficiency, and improve our carbon footprint are being recognized."

The CDP methodology scores organizations’ progress towards environmental stewardship and has built up the world's most comprehensive collection of self-reported environmental data.

OMV’s achievements in sustainability are evaluated every year by multiple ratings agencies in the fields of Environment, Society and Governance (ESG). In addition to CDP, OMV’s stellar performance has also been confirmed by its inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (RobecoSAM), FTSE4Good Index, and STOXX Global ESG Leaders Index (Sustainalytics), as well as an AAA rating by MSCI, and a Prime status by ISS ESG.
