October 9, 2013 /3BL Media/ - Bombardier announced today that it has achieved a position of leadership with regard to the quality of climate change data it submitted to the global marketplace through CDP, the world’s only global environmental disclosure system. The achievement is announced in the CDP Canada 200 Climate Change Report 2013, which tracks how Canada’s largest listed companies are acting in response to a changing climate.

Bombardier took part in CDP’s climate change program, designed to facilitate the management of greenhouse gas emissions and the risks and opportunities associated with climate change.  

This annual index highlights the largest 200 companies listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (Canada 200) that have displayed a strong approach to the disclosure of information regarding climate change. Companies are scored out of 100 on the completeness and standard of their submissions. Bombardier scored 93 and has achieved the position of “Industrials” leader in CDP’s Canada 200 Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI).

High scores indicate the provision of robust climate data and a good understanding of climate change related issues affecting the company. Through various channels, including Bloomberg terminals, these scores are communicated to investors and other decision makers to assess corporate preparedness for changing market demands and emissions regulation.

The CDLI comprises the organizations that achieved a score within the top 10% of the sample assessed. In 2013 the Canada 200 CDLI comprises 21 companies. The minimum score has risen year-on-year as corporate understanding of the need for climate transparency has increased. It now stands at 86.

"Our commitment to corporate social responsibility is an integral part of the competitive foundation of our enterprise strategy, helping us drive change and shape the evolution of mobility, responsibly. By transparently reporting our performance, risks and opportunities associated with climate change, our participation in the CDP and leadership position in the Canada 200 CDLI furthers this commitment," said Daniel Desjardins, Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, Bombardier Inc.
