Leonardo has been confirmed once again among the leaders in the fight against climate change by CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project), an international no profit organization, which evaluates the commitment of over 23,000 companies in management and monitoring of risks and opportunities related to climate change at the request of suppliers, customers and 746 investors, representing over 136 trillion US dollars of assets under management.

The rating obtained by Leonardo, equal to A- (where "D-" is the minimum score and "A" the maximum), demonstrates the validity of the decarbonization strategy that Leonardo is pursuing. At the core, the commitment to the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) to strengthen the decarbonization objectives already undertaken, defining new scientific objectives for reducing the Group's carbon footprint.

In 2022, the Company reduced its scope 1 and 2 emissions by 14.8% (vs. 2021) primarily due to the replacement of SF6 gas in the helicopter sector, while also initiating an internal dialogue to collaborate with its value chain to the reduction of scope 3 emissions. CDP also recognized and rewarded Leonardo for its ability to mitigate the risks associated with climate change and grasp the potential of its products and solutions as drivers of climate action.

Leonardo proves itself to be an active player in the decarbonization of the Aerospace and Defense sector also by promoting initiatives such as "Technology Driven Climate Action" as part of COP28.

This recognition follows the recent confirmation of Leonardo's inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index and Dow Jones Sustainability Europe Index financial indices, among the most important global and European stock market sustainability indices.
