The high-performance assessment demonstrates the efficiency of the environmental policy of the company, which has never participated in the CDP Water Resources rating before.
According to UN data, fresh water accounts for only 2.5% of the overall volume of water resources. Today, 3 people out of 10 globally have no access to safe fresh water. The global water deficit may reach 40% by 2030. In this regard, the CDP Water Resources rating has been gaining weight, thus encouraging companies, financial markets, and governments to ensure growth without harming the fresh water resources and to invest in the sustainable water-supply economy.
In January 2020, Rosneft joined the leading global oil & gas companies – participants of the global CDP Climate Change Rating and showed the best result among the participating Russian oil & gas companies. As a result of an independent assessment, Rosneft was assigned the “B” rating - the highest among the participating Russian oil and gas companies and two levels higher than the average rating of participating European companies.
Since 2007, Rosneft has been publishing Sustainability Reports in accordance with the international standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). The company is also a member of the UN Global Treaty, thus confirming its commitment to the highest principles of sustainable development.
CDP is the most reputable non-profit organization in sustainable development (ESG) with a 20-year history.
