Klépierre, the European leader in shopping malls, has once again been recognized for its leadership in transparency and performance in the fight against climate change by CDP. The environmental NGO has included Klépierre for the third time on its annual A List, this time for 2023. The A List brings together the world’s most advanced companies in this field.
Since 2018, Klépierre has reduced energy consumption at its shopping centers by more than 40% and direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions by 80% in line with its environmental commitments. In February 2023, the Group took its commitment one step further by launching Act4Good™, a CSR strategy to build the most sustainable platform for commerce based on four pillars:
– Act for the climate by achieving net zero by 2030;
– Act to service communities and territories around its shopping centers;
– Act as a skills developer for its employees, partners and visitors;
– Act to promote sustainable lifestyles for its entire ecosystem – customers, retailers, employees, partners and citizens.
“This rating, awarded to Klépierre by CDP for the third time, reflects the consistency of our efforts and our commitments to reduce the carbon footprint of our business. This time last year, we were presenting our new CSR strategy, Act4Good™, devised to reach our goal of building the most sustainable platform for commerce by 2030. I would like to commend the efforts of the Klépierre teams, especially those in our shopping centers, who work day in, day out to help reduce our impact on the environment,” said Jean-Marc Jestin, Chairman of the Klépierre Executive Board.
“Our inclusion on CDP’s A List is wonderful news. It represents a collective award that encourages us to take our actions even further,” said Clémentine Pacitti, Chief Sustainability Officer at Klépierre.
