Alcoa Named to Climate Disclosure Leadership Index for Sixth Consecutive Year; Commended on Quality of Climate Change Disclosure Practice
NEW YORK--Alcoa (NYSE:AA) announced today that it has been named to the Carbon
Disclosure Project (CDP) Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index for the
sixth consecutive year. This index, a key component of CDP’s
annual Global 500 Report, highlights companies within the FTSE Global
500 Index that have displayed the most proficient approach to corporate
governance in regards to climate change disclosure practices.
The CDP represents 385 global institutional investors with $57 trillion
in assets under management. Carbon disclosure and climate change
reporting is critical for investors to fully assess their risks,
liabilities and opportunities within their portfolios.
The Climate Disclosure Leadership Index is comprised of 67 global 500
companies that showed distinction in their responses to the CDP survey
based on reporting of greenhouse gas emissions, emissions reduction
targets and risks and opportunities associated with climate change. The

made up of the top 34 companies selected from non-carbon-intensive
sectors and the top 33 companies selected from carbon-intensive sectors.
