Dimension Data Scores high for its Carbon Emissions Disclosure

24th January 2014 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, January 24, 2014: Dimension Data, the USD 5.8 billion global IT services and solutions provider, said today that it has been awarded a score of 94 (out of 100) by CDP for disclosure of its climate change strategy.

Dimension Data’s Global Director for Sustainability Colin Curtis said, “This is the sixth year that Dimension has responded to CDP’s questionnaire, and our score of 94 is our highest to date. We are firmly committed to looking at ways that ICT can tackle not only economic, but also environmental and social issues – not just in our own business, but also for our clients.”

According to the Global e-Sustainability Initiative, the use of ICT could cut global greenhouse gas emissions by 16.5%, amounting to USD 1.9 trillion in energy and fuel savings, by 2020.

Head of Disclosure at CDP Daniel Turner said, “Dimension Data’s score is once again comparable to the top 10% of FTSE 350 companies that make up the FTSE 350 Climate Disclosure Leadership Index. This improved rating shows that the Group continues to honour its high level of commitment to tackling climate change, and that it understands the risks and opportunities represented by a changing world.”

When Dimension Data delisted from the London and Johannesburg stock exchanges in 2010, the company was no longer obligated to participate in the CDP report. However, the Group committed to making a voluntary submission every year so that it can measure its own commitment to sustainability and related reporting.
