TOKYO Nikkei Asia, in partnership with sister publication The Financial Times and data provider Statista, is compiling a list of Asia-Pacific companies that have achieved the greatest reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
The intention is to highlight businesses whose GHG emissions intensity fell the most between 2015 and 2020. The list will be published on Asia.nikkei in mid- 2022. Here is a sister list of European companies compiled by the FT and Statista.
You can fill out a short questionnaire about the company's GHG emissions for all the available years between 2015 and 2020 and its revenue over the same period or, for banks, net interest income, we ask you to send us a data verification form.
Eligibility for the list will be determined by the compound annual reduction rate CARR of emissions intensity. The Statista website has more information about methodology and conditions of participation, as well as useful contacts for potential candidates, which will be contacted by Statista or can put their name forward.
Inclusion on the Asia-Pacific 2022 list of Climate Leaders offers a number of benefits:
A company's inclusion on the Asia-Pacific Climate Leaders list will be a visible and public acknowledgment of its environmental performance that will extend far beyond any specific industry or country. It is possible that it can generate attention among potential partners, customers, employees, and investors around the world.
The list will be published on Asia.nikkei. In the Nikkei Asia weekly magazine, com and FT.com are also included.
The award logo can be used for marketing purposes by all companies on the list. Your company must meet the following criteria to be considered for inclusion:
