Dimension Data wins high score for carbon disclosure

The score of 94, out of 100, awarded by the Carbon Disclosure Project is its highest yet.

Dimension Data has been awarded a score of 94 (out of 100) by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) for its climate change strategy.

Colin Curtis, Dimension Data’s global director for sustainability said, "This is the sixth year that Dimension Data has responded to CDP’s questionnaire, and our score of 94 is our highest to date. We are firmly committed to looking at ways that ICT can tackle not only economic, but also environmental and social issues – not just in our own business, but also for our clients."

Daniel Turner, head of disclosure at CDP said, "Dimension Data’s score is once again comparable to the top 10 per cent of FTSE 350 companies that make up the FTSE 350 Climate Disclosure Leadership Index."

This follows the company being named as a leader in the Green Quadrant Sustainable Technology Services report by Verdantix in March last year.

The US$ 5.8 billion IT solutions provider was no longer obligated to participate in the CDP report following its delisting from the London and Johannesburg stock exchanges in 2010.

According to the group, it continued to make a voluntary submission to measure its own commitment to sustainability and related reporting.

"This philosophy is important to us. Sustainability is becoming an important strategy for many of our clients, and we believe it’s important to share the experience we’ve gained – both within our own operations, and from helping other organisations," added Curtis.

"Over the past 12 months, we were able to further reduce the travel, energy and waste in the organisation, and encourage our employees to make a positive contribution to society through sustainable initiatives."
