The ranking, published by the prestigious English newspaper in collaboration with Statista, highlights the top 500 companies in Europe that are more involved with climate action. Atresmedia, with 69.9 points has achieved position fourteen among the Spanish companies. Furthermore, the media group has ranked 5 positions above its main competitor.
This position is a huge recognition of the company’s efforts in the climate field and its climate governance strategy. Atresmedia has set targets to reduce its scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, aligned with the Paris’ Agreement, contributing to the limitation of the increase of average earth temperature to 1.5ºC. As part of the strategy, the Group has publicly committed to achieving Cero Neto in 2050.
For the first time, to evaluate the company’s environmental performance, the Financial Times and Statista initiative has considered, apart from de scope 1 and 2 emissions, the transparency on scope 3 emissions reporting. This is a recognition of the importance of considering the emotions of the value chain in the company’s climate strategies.
Another relevant aspect considered in the ranking has been the definition of specific indicators related to emissions reduction. The initiative has taken into account the CDP reporting, which Atresmedia comply since 2014 and the alignment of the reduction targets and plans with the Science Based Target Initiative, to which Atresmedia is publicly committed.
The Media Group will keep working to minimize its environmental impact and to raise awareness, through its content, about the need to urgently deal with the impact and consequences of climate change.
