Norwegian Scores Top Marks in Climate Effort Rankings
Norwegian has earned the highest grades in emission reduction initiatives according to this year’s global climate ranking by CDP. The airline achieved a “B” overall score. It got top marks in key areas such as risk management, disclosure, and energy use reporting.
The CDP, short for Carbon Disclosure Project, is known for its annual climate rankings. It shines a light on how companies manage their climate impact. In 2023, Norwegian Air was flying high with its improved B score. This reflects the airline’s strong efforts to cut down greenhouse gas emissions.
Anders Fagernæs, Norwegian‘s Vice President of Sustainability, expresses the company’s drive and pride. “We have committed to ambitious targets and are actively taking measures to reduce the company’s climate impact. It is therefore both rewarding and motivating to see that the hard work we are doing, leads to improvement in more categories than before. This means a lot to us and confirms that our strategy is working,” he says.
Since 2021, Norwegian has reported its strategies to combat climate change to CDP. The progress is clear, and transparency is key. It’s Norwegian’s answer to growing demands for climate openness from investors, finance sectors, clients, and policymakers.
Fagernæs details their approach, “We have a strategy for reducing the company’s climate impact, and we believe that the most efficient tool in the nearby future is to increase the use of fossil-free fuels. Besides fossil-free fuels, fleet renewal and advanced weather systems for more fuel-efficient navigation, are additional measures with immediate emissions reduction. We believe that transparency, reporting and openness will make it easier for customers to make qualified choices.”
