According to the fifth annual Carbon Disclosure Project report, computer maker Hewlett-Packard, Spanish utility company Iberdrola and English mining giant Rio Tinto are the world’s business leaders in reporting on their climate change exposure. The Carbon Disclosure Project is a cooperation of over 300 institutional investors who evaluate the risks companies face as a result of climate change and gauge these companies’ reporting practices based on questionnaires. In general, awareness of the risk of climate change seems to be growing in most companies. Still, some important companies such as Apple did not even respond to the CDP questionnaire.
