Posted 10 November 2017 · Add Comment

Cobham has achieved another A- in CDP's globally recognised environmental performance assessment, positioning the company among the best in the aerospace and defence category.



For the second year in a row, Cobham has been awarded an A- grade for the attention it has shown to mitigating climate risk and managing carbon emissions at its sites across the globe. The CDP score, which is a world-recognised assessment, acknowledges Cobham’s continuous work to manage its carbon footprint and recognises its commitment to integrate sustainability into business practices.

Since 2010, Cobham has fully responded to the CDP and has progressively improved its score as the company’s sustainability approach and strategy has matured. This year’s outstanding score acknowledges Cobham’s continuous work to manage its carbon footprint and commitment to integrate sustainability into business practices.

Eleanor Smith, Cobham’s vice president for Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability said: “We are proud of maintaining our leadership score for a second year. This demonstrates commitment to our company values and to protecting the environment and communities where we operate. It is a testament to the hard work of our employees, and their understanding of the risks and opportunities facing our global business. It gives our investors and customers confidence that we are effectively managing our environmental footprint. I am proud of all our teams involved.”

Cobham manufactures numerous products that help avoid emissions such as electrical slip rings for wind turbines, conformal and multifunctional aircraft antenna systems that reduce aircraft drag, and autonomous air to air refuelling systems that provide a more efficient service than aircraft returning to base. Other facility and service based energy efficiency programmes have included reduced engine taxi on our aircraft, waste recovery and segregation, LED lighting installations, and introduction of ‘telepresence’ systems across our global business.

CDP is a not-for-profit charity that runs the global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, states and regions to manage their environmental impacts.
