Isuzu received highest score in Supplier Engagement Rating
Selected for the Leaderboard following selection on Climate Change A List
Isuzu Motors Limited (headquartered in Shinagawa, Tokyo; Masanori Katayama, President and Representative Director; hereinafter Isuzu) has been awarded a position on the Supplier Engagement Leaderboard, as it earned the highest score in the 2020 Supplier Engagement Rating from CDP*, a non-profit organization influential in the field of the global environment. CDP assessed more than 5,700 companies, and 396 companies, including 83 Japanese companies were recognized as a Leaderboard.
This is the first time for Isuzu to have been included as a Leaderboard.
Companies and organizations are assessed based on their supplier engagements in four categories of governance, targets, scope 3 emissions and value chain engagement. Isuzu has been included in the Leaderboard as CDP highly rated the company's initiatives in reducing CO2 emissions throughout the product lifecycle from manufacture to disposal, managing climate change risks and making efforts to foster supplier engagement.
This follows the award win last December when Isuzu was recognized as the highest A List ranking in the 2020 survey on climate change by CDP.
