CA Technologies Named a Maplecroft Climate Innovation Index Leader
Rating of Largest U.S. Companies Provides Comprehensive Three Year
Trending of Climate Innovation
ISLANDIA, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that it has again been
named a Maplecroft Climate
Innovation Index Leader.
Developed by Maplecroft,
a leading source of global risk analysis, the Climate Innovation Indexes
(CIIs) are three indexes that rank the top 360 U.S. companies on the
basis of climate innovation and carbon management programs. The
Maplecroft CII Leaders index recognizes the 100 top performing companies
in their survey.
"The challenges and opportunities resulting from climate change require
bold commitments and innovative solutions, and we are honored to once
again be recognized by Maplecroft for our efforts," said Cynthia Curtis,
vice president and chief sustainability officer, CA Technologies.
"Through collaboration with our customers and partners, and leveraging
our technologies and committed employees, we're able to reduce our
energy consumption and increase operating efficiencies and help other
organizations do the same."
"Climate change will affect business in unexpected ways, such as
altering demand for existing products based on their climate-related
impacts and by driving demand for innovative sourcing, manufacturing,
logistics, usage and recycling," said Dr. Kevin Franklin, director,
Maplecroft. "With growing legislation and regulation in the U.S. around
emissions and climate change disclosures, companies must innovate or be
left behind. The CIIs favor front-runners that are engaging proactively
to shape the future growth environment, that have clear efficient
business processes and robust governance/business models."
The Maplecroft CIIs help investors to identify the most resilient and
innovative companies with the best long-term growth prospects.
Highlighted firms are innovating products, services, processes or
partnerships in order to reshape markets and position themselves to
succeed in the climate-changed, low-carbon environment of the future.
Since the CIIs conception in 2009, the firms at the top have
consistently outperformed their peers and competitors, as demonstrated
by the index's performance.
