RCL FOODS Maintains its Leadership Position in the 2019 Carbon Disclosure Project Climate Change Survey

The annual Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) surveys the world’s leading businesses in terms of their management of climate change impacts, as well as water security and forests. In the CDP 2018 Climate Change survey, RCL FOODS once again came top of the South African Food & Beverage sector, achieving an A minus score for the second consecutive year. This places us in the Leadership performance category, ahead of both our sector and the Africa region (both B minus). This means we are taking the lead in calculating, disclosing and making plans to lower our carbon footprint. We reported on our water security for the first time in the 2018 CDP survey. Still being in the initial stages of our water journey, we were pleased to achieve a C rating for Water Security, which was the average score for our sector. Being placed in the Awareness performance category indicates that we are aware of what we have to do and are positioned to make a greater difference going forward.
