3 extra-financial accolades consolidate le groupe La Poste’s extremely high level of commitment to CSR

Le groupe La Poste has obtained 3 extra-financial ratings, confirming its commitment to corporate responsibility and the application of its CSR measures. Having become a company with purpose in 2021, La Poste has placed environmental, social, and corporate issues at the heart of its strategic plan, “La Poste 2030: committed for you.”

Le groupe La Poste joins CDP’s prestigious “A list”

The CDP, a benchmark international organisation in the evaluation of the climate strategies of 13,000 companies, has featured le groupe La Poste on its A List in the “Climate Change” section i.e., amongst the 200 highest rated companies. In France, only 22 companies have obtained CDP’s A rating. This acknowledgement comes during a period in which “the number of A-rated companies in the climate category has decreased by 40%, as the consensus on the climate is now much more demanding for companies,” indicates CDP. “To earn an A in the climate category, companies must now possess a solid climate governance, a rigorous risk management process, verified scope 1 and 2 emissions and emission reduction objectives over the entirety of their value chains.”

Le groupe La Poste is proud to be a member of the highly exclusive club of the 200 companies in the world on CDP’s A list. This achievement is the result of an environmental policy that began almost two decades ago and that is an integral part of the strategic plan, “La Poste 2030: committed for you.” This new accolade is a reward for the commitment of all our employees who are devoted to creating a more sustainable and inclusive world on a daily basis.
