Best practice

KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. in detail on its climate impact

In 2021, KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. participated in the international project organized by the CDP for the second time. The Company significantly expanded the scope of climate data it provided. The CDP Climate Change 2021 Questionnaire for 2020 contained disclosures concerning, among others, climate-related risks, data on energy consumption and on indirect Scope 3 emissions.

CDP is a global environmental organization operating an information reporting system that enables companies, cities, and regions to measure and manage their environmental impact. CDP holds the world’s most comprehensive collection of reported data and is viewed as the gold standard for environmental reporting by the global economy, so participation in this initiative is critical for the Company.

The completion of work on the Climate Policy offers among others the opportunity to define CO₂ emission reduction targets. This means that in 2022, the data provided by KGHM to the CDP (for 2021) may be, for the first time, subject to a full and detailed classification assessment, which will further emphasize the Company’s efforts to implement best practices and solutions – including in communication of its environmental, social and corporate activities.

The expansion of disclosures was made possible by the effective cooperation between many departments in KGHM and KGHM CUPRUM Sp. z o.o. (CBR), coordinated by the Investor Relations Department.
