At Balta, our activities in the production of floor coverings impact the environment through the consumption of petrochemical-based polymers, the use of non-renewable energy and the output of emissions, contributing to our overall carbon footprint. Over the past few years, we have been making progress in reducing our impact on the climate through a series of positive actions in materials, product innovation, production, goods transportation and business activities.
That’s why we are proud to have disclosed our climate change and water security impacts through CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project), a global non-profit that runs the world’s leading environmental disclosure platform. CDP, co-funded by the European Union, drives companies and governments to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, safeguard water resources and protect forests.
Over 13,000 companies with over 64% of global market capitalization disclosed environmental data through CDP in 2021. This is in addition to the over 1,100 cities, states and regions who disclosed, making CDP’s platform one of the richest sources of information globally on how companies and governments are driving environmental change.
Quote from David Lammers, Deputy Director Corporate Engagement of CDP Europe:
“The scientific consensus on the need for urgent action on climate change has never been clearer. And ambition this decade will determine how well we can protect our natural resources and avoid the worst effects of global climate change. As policy and corporate stakeholders continue to develop strategies for environmental protection and a low-carbon transition, the availability of reliable and comparable data will remain of vital importance. By disclosing to CDP in 2021, Balta has demonstrated a commitment to corporate environmental transparency and made an important contribution to an economy that works for both people and planet.”
