Element Fleet gets a B in climate change analysis

TORONTO — Automotive fleet management company Element Fleet Management has received a B score from CDP, improving from its previous D rating, and ranking higher than the North American regional average.

Core to Element’s improved CDP score this year was the disclosure of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the company said in a release. As well, Arc by Element, its end-to-end fleet electrification and decarbonization solution, continues its momentum. The company has also taken steps to reduce energy usage across its facilities, including consolidating office footprints.

CDP is a UK-based not-for-profit that helps organizations disclose their environmental impact.

“We’re proud of the progress we’ve made toward environmental transparency,” said Laura Dottori-Attanasio, president and CEO of Element. “Our commitment to playing our part in building a sustainable future is unwavering. By taking action and leading with integrity and transparency, Element is well positioned to make the tangible changes that matter to our people, clients, suppliers, and communities – to create a better world for future generations.”

In 2023, Element completed CDP’s climate change questionnaire that encompassed global data covering Canada, the US, Australia, New Zealand, and Mexico. This year’s CDP score reflects the action on climate issues the company is taking related to environmental transparency, it said in the release.

“At Element, we continue to set targets, share our progress, and continuously improve our environmental, social and governance performance globally,” said David Colman, the company’ executive vice-president, chief legal and sustainability officer. “Our CDP score this year acknowledges that we are taking important action on climate issues and delivering sustained and positive differences where we live and work.”
