Aydem Renewables General Manager Ömer Fatih Keha has stated that the improvement and innovation investments they had made in their processes compared to the previous year have a great share in their success at CDP and said, “We attach great importance to the CDP assessment, within the scope of combating the climate change, which is one of the most important focuses of our sustainability journey. The success we have achieved in CDP's climate change and water safety rating this year has brought us one more step closer to our goal of being carbon neutral."

Reminding that the companies are evaluated with CDP scores in the climate index implemented in our country, Ömer Fatih Keha have said, “Companies that perform well in the CDP, in terms of climate index, come to the fore.

As Aydem Renewables, with our renewable energy investments and energy efficiency practices, we shall continue to take our place in the circular economy.”
What is CDP?
CDP works to change the way business world functions to mitigate the effects of climate change and to conserve the natural resources. CDP, an international non-profit organization headquartered in London, acts as an intermediary for public companies in reporting to their investors how they use the natural resources and natural capital, how their activities affect the reproduction of limited resources, and how they manage their risks in this field. In this context, on behalf of 590 global investors who manage $110 trillion of assets, CDP invites companies, to explain to the investors, their impact on climate change, water security and deforestation. In 2020, 9,600 companies representing more than 50% of the total value of the global markets have reported using CDP question sets. In the recent years, besides the increase in the number of the indices and funds that directly use CDP data all throughout the world, indices and mutual funds that take into consideration the other environmental and social impacts using CDP data are also becoming increasingly common.
