Mitie has earned a coveted spot on CDP’s prestigious ‘A List’, joining a select cohort of organisations recognised for their exemplary carbon reporting and environmental leadership.

CDP stands as the global benchmark for environmental reporting excellence. Annually, it scrutinises the carbon data of over 21,000 entities, evaluating them on their comprehensive reporting practices, management of environmental risks, leadership in sustainability, and establishment of meaningful carbon reduction objectives.

This year, a mere 1% of these organisations clinched an ‘A’ rating, securing their position on the esteemed ‘A List’, reserved for those companies demonstrating the highest levels of environmental transparency and progress toward achieving net zero emissions.

Simultaneously, Mitie has received a ‘Platinum’ rating from the SFMI for the third consecutive year. SFMI stands as the preeminent sustainability benchmark tailored specifically for the UK’s facilities management sector. To attain the top-tier ‘Platinum Award’, companies must exhibit leadership across 23 distinct categories encompassing sustainability, social impact, energy management, health and safety, employee welfare, and diversity, subject to three rigorous independent audits.

These achievements come after Mitie’s ESG Report 2023, which shows good progress across its environmental, social, and governance goals. Mitie is also one of just 219 companies globally validated by the SBTi for its carbon reduction targets.

The nods from CDP and SFMI highlight Mitie’s strong commitment to leading on environmental issues. This recognition adds to Mitie’s recent win as the ‘Best Company for Carbon Transition’ at the Corporate ESG Awards 2023.

Peter Dickinson, Mitie's Chief Legal Officer, said, “Getting recognised for our environmental efforts alongside global companies shows Mitie’s dedication to leading on environmental issues. We’ve set ambitious goals to reach net zero emissions by 2025, and by leading in our industry, we’re not only making an impact but also helping other companies reach their own sustainability goals.”

Sherry Madera, CEO of CDP, added, “Companies need to disclose their environmental impact if they're serious about tackling climate change. Making it onto the A List means having top-notch data that helps companies understand their impact and make real plans to cut emissions. We hope more companies will follow suit and turn their promises into action.”
