EasyJet has received an industry-leading mark of an A- from global disclosure system CDP for continuing to reduce the impact of its operations as well as for its robust and transparent reporting.
CDP, formerly known as the Climate Disclosure Project, is a not-for-profit charity that runs the global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, states and regions.
EasyJet is one of the few airlines in the world to have achieved a rating of A- and was previously graded B.
The airline boosted its score through the quality of its carbon disclosure as well as management of climate change risk.
The firm has implemented many changes across its business to reduce emissions, from switching to 100% reusable cutlery and cups to installing new aircraft technology that will save over 88,000 tonnes over CO2 each year.

EasyJet sustainability director Jane Ashton commented: “We are delighted to have been awarded an A- rating by CDP, a true testament to the hard work we are all doing at EasyJet to ensure that our SBTi-validated 2035 carbon reduction target is met and our aim to be net-zero by 2050 is realised.
“Decarbonising aviation continues to be a major undertaking and focus which is why EasyJet continues to take vital steps not only to safeguard the benefits the sector provides but also ensure that we do all that we can to minimise our impact.”
