LeasePlan’s ESG efforts have recently been recognised by Sustainalytics, an independent agency that assesses and rates the ESG credentials of thousands of companies worldwide. “Our business is analysed every year, and in August 2021, we achieved a record score,” confirms Matt. “For years, and until very recently, we were considered a ‘Medium risk’ and had a score of 21.6, but thanks to our hard work we’re now at 15.9, and firmly within the ‘Low risk’ category. It shows our ESG approach is paying off!”
LeasePlan was also rated ‘Low risk’ in terms of its exposure to different ESG material issues, such as business ethics, human capital and data privacy & security. Furthermore, Sustainalytics judged LeasePlan’s ESG management to be strong in terms of the robustness of its programmes, practices and policies.
