Environment news : Amer Sports participated in Carbon Disclosure Project in 2012

Amer Sports participated in the Carbon Disclosure project (CDP) in 2012. The CDP results were published in November and the company score was 54 (2011: 51) in a scale up to 100, performance score being E (2011: E). The rating methodology gets tighter every year, but Amer Sports was able to improve slightly by a few points compared to the 2011.

The CDP is a global initiative to accelerate solutions to mitigate climate change, acting on behalf of 655 institutional investors holding US$78 trillion in assets to help reveal the risk in their investment portfolios. As Amer Sports shares are listed on the NASDAQ OMX Helsinki stock exchange, Amer Sports CDP results are published as a part of the CDP Nordic report (more information on the CDP Nordic 260 Climate Change Report 2012 on www.cdproject.net).

With the cooperation of Amer Sports sites, Amer Sports conducts the carbon footprint calculations annually. It is an internal tool to highlight the company’s environmental impact and improve the understanding of the involved risks and opportunities. CDP reporting is also a tool to increase transparency on environmental issues and answer to stakeholders, e.g. investors and customers, increased interest on sustainability matters.

Save energy, reduce waste, rationalize travel and create costs savings

By participating in the CDP companies worldwide can have more understanding on their carbon emission sources and they can estimate how to cut down emissions and create efficiency, for example on the use of energy, reduction of waste and by rationalizing travel, which all also create cost savings. The data on building energy, travel, refrigerants, paper and waste was gathered from all headquarters (Group and brands), main manufacturing facilities, largest distribution centers and all sales companies.
